The Summer Gardens are a riot of color, with vibrant displays of annuals and perennials set against a backdrop of carefully placed trees and shrubs. This area of the garden is particularly popular during the summer months when the flowers are at their peak.

The Glades are a series of open spaces dotted with trees and shrubs, providing a tranquil setting for visitors to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the park.
In addition to the themed gardens, the Savill Garden also features a number of other attractions, including a rose garden, a winter garden, and a range of sculptures and other works of art.
