This beautiful pond is part of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey. Best known for its arboretum, it has many interesting nooks and spaces.
The pond is home to a vast number of orange/brown fish, ranging in size from small to massive. They can be coaxed out, from under the lilly-pads, with bread crumbs. Groups of excited children stare with fascination at the teeming hoards.
There is a spacious cafe in the relatively modern buildings which offers welcome refreshment after a stroll around the grounds.
Currently, the grounds are show-casing a varied collection of sculptures which add to the enjoyment of a visit.
