Haslemere Museum gardens are open to the public, providing a peaceful haven just off Haslemere High Street.  

In addition to the woodland, pond and lawned areas, there is now a new plant stall selling perennials and flowering garden plants.

The beehive observation house has also opened for the summer, allowing visitors to see bees behind glass as they work in the hive. 

The gardens were originally landscaped in the 18th century, and a gazebo was built overlooking the pond during that time. 

Today, beyond the lawns, a boardwalk has been constructed through the woodland. It encircles a wild meadow and leads to the pond, which serves as a habitat for creatures such as frogs and dragonflies.

Visitors are welcome to the gardens on Tuesdays to Saturdays between 10am and 5pm. Entry is free, although donations are appreciated at the front desk.

Throughout the summer, the gardens will host various family events, including outdoor theatre, a falconry display and a teddy bears’ picnic.
