Welcome to Stansted Park Garden Centre

Located in the South Downs National Park you will be hard pressed to find a Garden Centre in the UK in more picturesque surroundings.

A visit to the Garden Centre is not complete without visiting our neighbours at the Pavilion Tea Room, or a walk round the Historic Stansted House.

If local produce is your thing, our friends at the Farm shop can help with local produce, or enjoy a home baked Pizza before trying to conquer the Maze!

A true day out which makes a change from the beach...

Create a new border

Make this the summer you create a new border, carving it out of your lawn or just overhauling a tired area of the garden. Improve the soil with plenty of well-rotted organic matter, and you can plant now for instant colour: great choices include bergamot, canna, daylilies, phlox and the exotic-looking pineapple lily, Eucomis bicolor.
