Garden Visits

The Rewilded Walled Garden at Knepp is a unique horticultural experiment inspired by what we’ve learnt from rewilding in the wider landscape. The aim is to maximise biodiversity while at the same time being as sustainable as possible. It’s about challenging old ways of thinking and working with, rather than against, nature.

The project, planted in 2021 and featuring over 1,000 species of plants, has been masterminded by our garden advisory board: Tom Stuart-Smith (world-renowned landscape designer); Mick Crawley (emeritus professor of plant ecology at Imperial College); James Hitchmough, (professor of horticultural ecology at the University of Sheffield); and Jekka McVicar, (author and organic gardening expert). Our Gardens Team are learning to think like beavers, wild ponies, dung beetles and earthworms as they learn the value of being a keystone species.

We have a range of different garden tours this year, each offering a different level of exploration and focus.

We can also accommodate bespoke garden visits and group tours.  For more information and available dates, email

Garden visits are conducted on foot, at a gentle pace on uneven ground for 2-3 hours. On receiving your booking we’ll send you further details of where to meet and what to bring. 

Unfortunately the garden is not yet wheelchair accessible – but we’re working on it!

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
