RHS Hyde Hall

A visit to the 360-acre Hyde Hall estate is unforgettable in any season and allows visitors to immerse themselves in nature.

Hyde Hall is in an area of Essex that has very low rainfall, and this factor, combined with the soil conditions and exposed nature of the site, makes it a challenging area for gardening.

A visit will show that by choosing the right plants for the right places and by working with the prevailing conditions, it is possible to create a garden of beauty.

Venue Type:

Garden, parklands or rural site

Opening hours

Open all year except Christmas Day
March – Oct 10am-6pm
Nov – Feb 10am-4pm
Last admission is one hour before closing.
