Welcome to Lea Gardens
We reopen on 1st March 2015 (although plant sales continue throughout the year – see the Plant Sales page for details).
Lea Gardens is a Rhododendron Garden just outside the village of Lea, close to Matlock in Derbyshire. The Garden covers approximately three and a half acres, and is situated within a woodland area, with access paths which allow visitors to see the 500 or more varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas and other plants.
The Garden is open to the public for viewing and plant sales, and we also have a very popular Teashop. Parking is free, and well-behaved dogs (on a lead) are welcome in the Garden.
We are very close to Lea Bridge and Cromford, which are part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, and on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
