Rosemoor's popular Winter Sculpture Exhibition is on now, this year with a Myths and Legends theme. See more than 120 pieces of sculpture created by 20 of the UK’s top sculptors, including Simon Brant, Ama Menec, George Hider and Ian Marlow. The sculptures are arranged throughout the beautiful Devon garden, and each piece has been carefully placed to enlighten, amuse and inspire.

As you explore, don't miss some of the garden's seasonal highlights, including perfumes from Viburnums and Daphnes; beautiful berries; and surprising colours and textures, especially from fine trees.

You can also join a free guided walk each Wednesday morning (weather permitting). Walks depart from the Visitor Centre at 11.30am.

Diary note: Calling Tolkien lovers

The ‘Myths and Legends’ theme is a fore-runner to a major exhibition to be held at RHS Rosemoor in 2014 – Journeys Into Middle-earth - featuring original art and paintings from Ted Nasmith, a leading illustrator for J.R.R.Tolkien.

Enter a magical world with this family-friendly exhibition of artwork inspired by Tolkien’s Middle-earth. The exhibition will include letters and memorabilia kindly loaned by the Tolkien family, family trails, and garden sculptures including the outside of a Middle-Earth home and garden.

RHS Garden Rosemoor is signposted at Great Torrington and is situated 1 mile south on the A3124.
