Henstead Exotic Garden
Henstead Exotic Garden was made from scratch 10 years ago, surprising visiors with its voluptuous nature and giant plants.

The backbone of the garden are the five plus buildings, tropical style summerhouse, Thai style pavilion, a Lord Of The Rings style composting toilet with stained glass windows, and a rustic café, with old butler sink and 1960 signs. Some 70 plus tons of rock have been brought into the garden, that now have self sown ferns protruding from between the rocks, including a 25 ton rock walkway.

In between the buildings are Indian Sandstone paths with exotics billowing from every direction. The journey takes you past many fish filled ponds with water lilies, streams and waterfalls never far away. There are 100 plus large palms, bananas, 200 plus bamboos, some that are 30 feet tall and have three inch canes!
