Leonardslee Garden in West Sussex


If you are planning to visit the most expensive garden of the world then check out this place – Leonardslee Garden in West Sussex. It is an abundant, 225-acre property packed with beautiful and gorgeous flower gardens, wallabies, lakes, waterfalls and unique and special varieties of trees. The gardens are filled with exotic flowers such as rhododendrons, camellias, magnolias and azaleas and the forty-strong species of wallabies, many of them albinos. These help to keep the gardens safe from the overgrown weeds.

Since Sir Edmund Loder purchased this beautiful estate in 1889, they are the proud owner of this place. It has been open for public visit for long 101 years. However, this has changed in 2010 when Robin Loder, representing the fifth generation of Loders to maintain Leonardslee, sold the gardens for a huge price of £5 million—US $7.62 million—to some unknown buyer who wished to stop free public access to the gardens.
