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 Blossom Cafe with beautiful outdoor seating area, or a walk around 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!

Relax on the lawn while the kids play on the new play centre, before a trip on the Railway....

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

Give wildlife a drink

Put out a tray of water in warm weather and you'll find a host of wild creatures appreciate it to the full, from birds wanting a drink and a bath, to bats and hedgehogs looking for a watering hole at dusk. Even bees need to drink, so make sure it's kept topped up at all times.
