In the formal gardens you’ll find a hornbeam cloister walk, wisteria-clad pergola, delphinium border, old roses and the world’s tallest box hedges. In summer, the terraces are a blaze of colour and offer views of the castle, river and suspension bridge. Beyond these is a natural landscape with a lake, rivers and waterfall.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.
Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.
Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
