Children and Family Events
Date: Saturday, 06 April - Monday, 30 September

Furzey Gardens is a social enterprise which provides training and work experience for people with learning disabilities.

Your visit supports our work - Thank You!

There are 10 acres of enchanting woodland gardens to explore, with something for every age and every season.

Informal paths lead to captivating sights and scents with views across the New Forest to the Isle of Wight.

The Gardens, first planted in 1922, now contain an extensive collection of rare and beautiful plants from around the world.

It's perfect for children too.


Hunting for the tiny fairy doors hidden around the gardens is why many children love to visit Furzey Gardens time and time again. Come and join in the fun, creep around at the base of trees and you mighfairy door close upt discover twisted in gnarled old oak or nestled under bushes, a tiny door no more than a foot high.

Furzey gives up its secrets slowly though and you will need to look hard. There are reputed to be over 40 of these secret fairy doors, designed and carved by a master thatcher.

Although it is fun to leave letters and gifts for the Fairies, please encourage your children to post their letters in the Fairy Post Box and not leave items and glitter around the fairy doors, as they are not bio-degradable and could harm wildlife.
