The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden near Dorking is an absolute must. The garden is spectacular and unusual, but so too are many of the exhibits. This is a place to take time out and reflect, but don't expect to find manicured borders - this is a garden with a dreamlike quality and at each new corner you will encounter another surprise that challenges the senses. There are moving exhibits, music and a tantalising display of tactile sculptures on show, complemented by huge plants, reminiscent of Jurassic Park.
Even though the garden does not cover a great area, there is so much to see that it feels as though you are walking through a jungle, with bridges, ponds and dense overhead cover. There are huge architectural plants everywhere; a forest walk and large green spaces; with a black and white house as the centrepiece overlooking the water - you almost expect the a wicked witch to appear because the overall impression is one of a fairy tale!
The sculpture on show is impressive (and so are the prices)! I only visited because I wanted to see the garden, which is the most perfect backdrop for the art on show, but I would still recommend this to anyone who wants to see a garden that is different.
We do not have that many sculpture gardens in the UK, but this one is definitely worth visiting!
