Gardens

The Orchard will be open from Monday 20 July. We have added picnic benches, a wildlife spotters trail and bird hide. You are welcome to enjoy refreshments from the tea room or why not bring a picnic?

The Walled Garden will be closed until later in the summer. This is to allow for major improvement works to the pathways. This was due to take place earlier in the year but unfortunately had to be postponed due to Covid 19.

Whilst the museum has been closed, nature has re-claimed our Woodland Walk and we are pleased to announce that we have some babies nesting in this area. This does unfortunately mean that the Woodland Walk will remain closed until later in the summer. Thank you for your understanding.

Walled Garden

Closed for winter. Visit our beautiful Walled Garden filled with seasonal fruit & veg and colourful flowers. It evokes the character of a working Victorian Kitchen Garden.

Winter Garden

A Winter Garden was a must for Victorian high society. Today you can still enjoy the tropical planting, browse through our books and enjoy unrivalled views of the park.
