Pocket Guide: New Forest Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway Hotels

A stunning country house surrounding by beautifully landscaped gardens, the Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway will provide an unforgettable day out for the whole family. It has good transport links to plenty of Hampshire hotels, from affordable bed and breakfasts to luxury four-star hotels, and is part of the scenic New Forest National Park.

Owned by the Affluent Rothschild Family

Once one of the world's richest families, the Rothschilds acquired the Exbury estate shortly after the First World War, transforming it into an extravagant decorated park. Soon afterwards, the family built the impressive Exbury mansion, which was designed in the Classical Revival style emulating the architecture of classical antiquity.

The Gardens

Today, the Exbury Gardens are decorated with a diverse array of plant species and are perhaps best visited on a bright spring or summer day, where you can admire their flamboyant flowers. However, in the autumn, many of the trees transform into deep shades of red and orange, often between mid-October and early November.

The Steam Railway

Hop abroad Exbury Gardens' 12 ¼ inch gauge Steam Railway. The trip lasts for 20 minutes and is the best way to admire the park's wonderful beauty. Afterwards, you can take the kids to the adventure play area, then treat yourself to some tasty cakes or ice cream at the Mr Eddy's Tea Rooms, which also serve various hot and cold drinks and sandwiches.

Other Attractions near the Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway

Explore the rest of the New Forest National Parks and see its families of deer, donkeys and ponies grazing the landscape. You could also visit the picturesque town of Lyndhurst, dubbed the 'Capital of the New Forest', and spend some time at the New Forest Museum and the New Forest Gallery.

Lyndhurst is also known for the magnificent Queen's House, which is the location of the Forestry Commission and was built on a former manor house dating back to medieval times. The current house was built in the 17th Century and has welcomed numerous monarchs during its existence, including King George III in 1789, the year of the French Revolution.
