One Garden

There are two car parks within Stanmer Park which are managed by Brighton & Hove City Council with pay-by-card machines (not cash). Patchway, at the top of Stanmer Park, is the closest car park to One Garden.

We look forward to welcoming you and your four-legged friends. Dogs are allowed in One Garden Brighton in all indoor and outdoor spaces. Paws on the floor, and short leads please.

There are bins positioned throughout the garden which are sorted and recycled.

We have recycled and reclaimed materials throughout the garden wherever possible. Our boardwalk is made from Ash trees within the Stanmer Estate, milled and installed by the Plumpton College grounds and gardens teams. The run-off rainwater is captured and filtered through the beds in this garden. Old ducting from within the glasshouses has been repurposed into planters and tiles from the old bothy buildings used within pathways. You will be able to find many more examples on your visit to One Garden Brighton.

One Garden Brighton is proudly presented and managed by Plumpton College. Our Horticultural centre of excellence for training and education is based at One Garden Brighton and you will regularly see students working within the garden spaces, developing designs and maintaining the grounds.

We have strong links with our local community, whether it's use of spaces within One Garden Brighton or our excellent team of volunteers. If you wish to get involved, host an event or sell your produce within One Garden Brighton email hello@onegardenbrighton.com.

The Palm House and Long Border were not part of the original restoration project funding. 

Where can I find lost property?

Yes, all found items are kept for three months. If you have lost something, please email hello@onegardenbrighton.com.

All we ask is that you supply your own pair of steel toe-cap boots for safety reasons, clothing appropriate for carrying out physical tasks, including wet weather clothing when required, ie waterproof jacket and trousers.

We encourage volunteers to use sustainable methods of transport where possible but do have paid car parking and disabled parking on site. The park is also served by the number 78 bus and the 5B and 25 buses (to the park gates). We therefore are not able to reimburse travel costs. 

We encourage all ages from 11 to 100! If you are between the ages of 11 and 16, we do ask that you have written consent from your parent or guardian.
