Himalayan Gardens

The Himalayan Gardens at Riverhill in Kent are easily accessible being 10 minutes from J5 of the M25. The gardens sit on the steep south facing slope of the North Downs...



...Which give a good view over west Kent (when the haze is not present).



It has formal vegetable gardens next to the old pinaplearium:



Fairy gates:



Stables:



Some water features on a stepped lawn / amphitheatre:



And a very good maze:

Re: Himalayan Gardens

Lush green gardens, OM, but I sure wouldn't wish to get lost in that maze.

Thank you Mark. From up close it looked quite easy with good visibility but once inside that thought was dispelled.
