Overbeck’s Museum and Garden

Overbeck's is one of the most fascinating and exotic gardens in the South West. Explore the banana garden, meander through the towering purple echiums or just relax beneath palms and soak up the spectacular panorama across miles of beautiful coastline and estuary.

Continue your journey of discovery into the Edwardian house of Otto Overbeck to see his amazing invention – the rejuvenator, hear the giant (1890s) music box and prepare to be intrigued by his collections. The perfect day out for families who enjoy exploring, or the keen gardener who wants to be inspired and excited. Please note that the grounds are very steep in places.
 
There's lots for children to see and do as well, with a fun quiz and trail where they can search for Fred, the friendly ghost! Facilities include a shop and tea room.
