About Tilgate Park

Credit: Greg Sutton Photography

Tilgate Park has always been known as a top visitor attraction.

Conveniently located close to the M23, midway between London and Brighton and with Gatwick on its doorstep, your guests will have ample choice for travel and accommodation locally.

Visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the peace and serenity of the Walled Garden, as well as many of the formal gardens located around the park.

The park offers a variety of colour and scenery all year. Weddings in spring will enjoy stunning backdrops of mature azaleas and rhododendrons in all colours from pastel pinks and lilacs to vibrant reds and yellows. In summer, the roses are in full bloom and fragrantly sweeten the air around the Walled Garden. Crisp autumnal air turns trees red and adorns the paths with the natural confetti of fallen leaves. And who can resist the sparkle of winter sun catching the frost or even the snow if we’re lucky.
