We have been to Nymans many times the gardens are always very well kept. Although we had eaten elsewhere we do often enjoy a picnic on the large lawn in the summer On this occasion we did not visit the house Well worth a visit if you enjoy fantastic array of flowers and plants

The gardens are amazing and varied. The Summer borders and walled garden are just fantastic at this time of year. The dry rock garden also has unusual and interesting planting. Perhaps more labelling and information about the plants could be provided. Yes, there were a lot of children but better to see them running around a garden than glued to... More

The most beautiful NT house I have visited! Exquisite gardens which are superbly maintained. Staff extremely helpful with extra information, leaflets and maps. V&A exhibition on the life of Vivian Leigh which was well curated and multimedia. Overpriced cafe as always but a beautiful site none the less.

We are regular visitors to Nymans as National Trust members. Without membership, entrance prices are quite expensive, £29 for a family of 4. Car parking is always a struggle on busy days but it is worth the effort as once you have parked and have made your way through the entrance and cafe area the gardens are quite lovely. Go... More

Visited Nymans for the first time whilst staying in Brighton. Gardens were beautiful and well worth the visit. Interesting display rooms in the house and the current Vivien Leigh exhibition is worth seeing. Café is typical NT.

I'd like to give Nymans a 5 star rating - it is a wonderful garden, with many unusual plants and a 'must' for any serious gardener. The house (part ruin) is beautiful and the setting offers lots of opportunities for the photographer. But..... we visited in August, having driven 90 minutes to meet friends here.... and it was packed out... More

Beautiful well kept gardens & house. A wonderful day out for the whole family, with lots of different activities to tire the little ones out. Already visited 3 times so far this year.

Nymans has beautiful landscaped woods and gardens and is a lovely place too visit. We went in August and the walled garden was full of colour and the views across the South Downs is amazing. the house is small but interesting and there is a programme of changing exhibits. There is a nice cafe and a shop. Plenty of car... More

A great day enjoying the plants, setting, views, walks and the cafe. Despite the heat a pleasant breeze made made it perfect. Lots of space to wander, with a good variety of walks (different lengths) and buggy tours for those who are less mobile. The cafe has a lot of seating and a good range of options. Recommend you get... More
