About Lewes Garden Centre

Lewes Garden Centre, a purpose built garden centre situated in the South Downs National Park, has been trading since 1990 and joined the family-owned British Garden Centre Group in 2019. The site was once a fruit and veg retailer, which primarily grew tomatoes. This modern centre has a large plant department, which boasts an extensive variety of plants and products to meet all your gardening needs. We also offer a variety of gifts, homeware, furniture and so much more.

Our Gardener’s Retreat Restaurant is truly one of kind with our outdoor seating area situated overlooking the plant department, allowing you to browse the options whilst relaxing and enjoying a refreshing drink as well as an indoor dog friendly seating area.  We offer a wide selection of main meals and tasty treats and within our restaurant we have lovely children’s soft play, a perfect place to keep them entertained whilst you relax.

We are family and dog friendly, offer free parking and look forward to welcoming you.
