Designed and planted by a professional garden designer and artist together with his actress wife Emily, this garden although under development, is full of colour and interest. Nestling down a quiet lane, the historic 300year old south facing walled garden provides plenty of areas to relax and enjoy the peace and calm of this tranquil space. The large pond is stocked with waterlillies imported from France. The lawns are gently sloping and there is a small orchard. Rose and herbaceous borders can be enjoyed from the many seating areas.

Springbourne Rectory Lane Clapham Village, Worthing BN13 3UX is open for the National Garden Scheme on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th July (10am-4pm) Admission £5 (Adults only). Light refreshments (cash only). Book online on the National Garden Scheme website or pay on the day.

The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK's best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.

Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated more than £70 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2023 made donations of over £3.4 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
