We've seen almost 21000 visitors since 2009.
See the many 5* reviews on TripAdvisor too.
In 2017, 2018 and 2019 we were awarded a "Certificate Of Excellence" for consistently excellent reviews! The garden was a finalist in the 2018 Lewes District Business Awards, "Tourist Destination of the Year".

In 2017 we had an 8 page feature in the national lifestyle magazine, Coast and in 2018 an 8-page feature in an American magazine, Flea Market Gardening Style.

The garden was featured on BBC South East Today in August 2018, see the short film by clicking link.

The garden has featured on BBC2 Gardeners' World, been a finalist in the Garden of the Year by Gardeners' World Magazine in the small space category. We have been accorded the honour of the smallest garden listed on the Great British Gardens website too.

In 2014 we were featured on ITV's Good Morning Britain and listed as one of 25 glorious Sussex gardens to visit in Sussex Life Magazine.

The garden is located right on the 12 & 12a bus routes from Brighton or Eastbourne, so you can leave the car at home and come by bus!

RECENT FEEDBACK FROM SPEAKER SECRETARY IN LEWES

"Thank you for coming and delighting us with you talk about Driftwood and your various fundraising activities. I think I enjoyed your talk last night even more than the first time, because I had visited the garden in between times and everything made more sense this time. Seeing pictures of your garden in summer was very uplifting at this dull time of the year. Several members have said they plan to visit you this summer and I hope to as well. I hope you have a very successful summer."
