Compton Acres - 10 Acres of Beautiful Gardens

The South's Finest Privately Owned Historic Gardens

Compton Acres invites you to experience the beauty of our historic gardens.

Compton Acres was built in 1924 and is a wonderful example of a historic garden in the UK. It is of late Victorian Mixed Style design with seven distinct gardens to wander around and enjoy, including the famous Italian and Japanese Gardens.

Having undergone extensive refurbishment in the past 8 years, Compton Acres is now highly regarded as one of the most important historic gardens in England. We employ a team of gardeners and designers and use modern horticultural techniques to ensure year round interest. We have added over 1,000 different new plants to our collection to recapture the genius of the original gardens.

As well as its ten beautiful acres of gardens, there are two cafes, a specialist Plant Centre and Shops. 

Compton Acres offers a warm welcome to your whole family with a range of seasonal activities.

Car Parking Notice

Regular visitors to Compton Acres will be aware of the construction works in progress and as a result we temporarily have fewer parking spaces.
