Emmetts Garden

Gardens & Parks
Emmetts Garden, covering around 2.5 ha (6 acres), is an arboretum and woodland garden, including a rose garden and a rock garden. The garden was created between 1893 and 1895 by Frederic Lubbock, a banker and plantsman, who had bought the Emmetts estate in 1890.

The layout was influenced by William Robinson, who was a friend of Lubbock.

After his death in 1927, the estate was acquired by Charles Watson Boise, an American geologist. He bequeathed Emmetts to the National Trust.

The garden offers a magnificent over the North Downs.

Only the garden is open to the public.
