Gardens

Exeter is a green city, with peaceful parks and beautiful, historical gardens to be found around every corner.

The Grade II listed Northernhay Gardens are the oldest public gardens in England, and neighbouring Rougemont Gardens originally formed part of the defences to Exeter Castle. The University of Exeter is regarded as the best University botanical garden in the UK - find out more on a garden tour.

Exeter is surrounded by green space; discover the city's valley parks on the Green Circle Walk, or head further afield to wide open countryside and some beautiful gardens at nearby Killerton Estate and Powderham Castle.

Meet expert growers and indulge in all things gardening at the annual Toby Buckland's Garden Festival at Powderham in the spring.
