Welcome to Broadview Gardens

The Broadview complex is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Located within the College grounds, just outside of Tonbridge, it includes ten acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, a retail Garden Centre, Kent Produce shop, Tearoom and in-house florist.

The Gardens were started in 1992 on a former sheep field as a resource for the growing number of horticulture students.  The basic structure of the garden was planned by the College lecturers.  Each year students either build a new garden on an undeveloped area or regenerate an existing garden.  Some of the recent projects include the renovation of the Oriental Garden and the development of Food 4 Thought, the 2010 Hampton Court Flower show Gold medal winning garden. The general maintenance of the gardens is done by a team of dedicated gardeners.
