Broadview Gardens

Broadview Gardens

Broadview Gardens, Hadlow are situated 4 miles north east of Tonbridge. On the A26 they are 9 miles south west of Maidstone. They are part of Hadlow College.

Set in ten acres of landscaped gardens, Broadview Gardens is located in the peaceful picturesque Kent countryside. Divided into smaller sub-areas, visitors will be able to experience the wonders of a traditional Italian garden, wander around the Japanese garden as well as explore the sensory and water gardens.

Free to enter, Broadview Gardens holds two National Collections (Hellebores and Japanese anemones) and hosts a number of events throughout the year. The beds are seasonally planted meaning that there is always something interesting to see. Our spectacular dogwoods create a living flame effect during the winter which, combined with the peeling bark of birches and vibrant eranthis, iris reticula and other early flowering bulbs, means that there is always a variety of colour on offer.

Open to visitors all year round, guided tours (at a cost of £3 per person) are available for coach parties and large tour groups on request.

There are 8 acres of ornamental planting set in an attractive landscape. A double long border stretches for 100 metres together with island beds of mixed plantings and lake and water gardens.

There are a series of demonstration gardens including Italian, oriental and cottage. You will also find NCCPG National Collections of Anemone japonica and hellebores.

The Gardens are open all year from 10am-5pm (Sundays 10am-4pm). But please check before visiting.
