If you’re looking for a fantastic getaway destination this spring, summer, or fall, it’s long past time to put the breathtakingly beautiful Seacoast of New Hampshire on your radar. This is particularly true when it comes to exploring the many hidden gems of the Seacoast, including the gorgeous Fuller Gardens. The Fuller Gardens is a stunning botanical garden located seaside, about midway along the Seacoast in North Hampton.
The Seacoast of New Hampshire, where you’ll find one of New Hampshire’s biggest cities, Portsmouth, is only about 18 miles long, but it’s packed with a rich history and plenty of fascinating towns, gorgeous beaches, magnificent state parks, and so much more. In short, it’s a fantastic place to spend a few relaxing days with your sweetheart and offers a much-needed change of pace when compared with today’s modern city.
Of the many great towns to enjoy on the Seacoast of New Hampshire is Exeter, which also just so happens to be where you’ll find the Inn by the Bandstand, one of the top hotels in Exeter, NH. Our Hotel in Exeter, NH is only about 15 minutes inland from Fuller Gardens and centrally located to many of the best things to do on the Seacoast of New Hampshire.

Though there are more than enough things to do on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, one of our favorite things is visiting the Fuller Gardens. Though Fuller Gardens now operates as a public botanical garden, it was once part of the historic estate of Alvan T. Fuller, offering visitors an unparalleled opportunity to view the historic grandeur of a turn-of-the-century estate. It’s actually one of the last working estate gardens of its kind left in the country.
There are several great things worth seeing at the historic Fuller Gardens, but one of the many highlights of this stunning space is its expansive rose gardens. These formal rose gardens, commissioned in the 1920s, feature thousands of rose bushes and more than 100 varieties. Thanks to the intentional design of this garden, visitors will enjoy an entire season’s worth of blooms from June through October.
Aside from their gorgeous rose gardens, the Fuller Gardens also have formal English perennial border gardens that bloom from spring through fall, a peaceful Japanese Garden that blooms in May, and a tropical conservatory, all of which are beautifully framed by traditional sculpted hedges popular in early 20th-century estate gardens. There’s also a beautiful Dahlia garden on-site that blooms all season long.
The Fuller Gardens opens for the year on Mother’s Day Weekend in early May and stays open through mid-October. It’s open seven days a week from 10 am – 5:30 pm. The admission cost is currently $10/adult, and at least 75% of the Fuller Gardens is handicap accessible for easy garden viewing for its guests. There are also fun events throughout the season held at the Fuller Gardens.
