Host An Event With Us

Make Borde Hill Garden your own for the day

Private Hire

Hire a marquee located in our picturesque surroundings

Are you looking for a beautiful and tranquil venue for a special celebration, or a unique setting to entertain your clients, host a meeting or treat staff to an away day?

Our wonderfully decorated marquee can be privately hired and can accommodate up to 80 people. Instead of a break out room, your clients or team will enjoy getting out into the fresh air and exploring the Garden, to reawaken the senses and promote wellbeing.

We can offer a variety of catering options, from coffee and pastries on arrival, to a buffet or served lunch and delicious afternoon tea options. The venue is also fully licensed.

Marquee hire starts from £700 + VAT including Garden entry and is available for daytime events only.

Available all year for photography or film shoots

Sweeping Parkland, rugged Woodland and 13 beautiful ‘garden rooms’ means Borde Hill has a wealth of unique locations available for hire for filming, photoshoots and product launches.

Group Visits

Whether visiting with a large group of friends or a group of fellow plant lovers, we can cater for all. We offer pre-booked group talks and tours with expert guides around our Garden and have a varied event programme on offer throughout the season. 

For those looking for something extra, we’ve teamed up with a selection of neighbouring Sussex attractions to offer contrasting day packages to groups of 15+ people.

Garden Map

View a map of our nationally important English country Garden. Most paths in the formal Garden are step-free and accessible to those with restricted mobility. However, there are some steps and steep slopes which are indicated on the map.

There are plenty of benches located around the Garden for relaxing and taking in the sights should you want to stop for a rest.
