we chanced to ride on the electric golf cart and were given a knowledgeable tour of the garden. In Spring it must be amazing , sadly this is October.

Nymans is one of the most beautiful garden settings I have visited in Sussex with impressive gardens backed by magnificent rolling scenery across the Downs. Always enjoy the visit experience.

I think you do as from the car park you go through an entrance to the grounds (where you pay) and the entrance to the woodland walk is after that point.
