Castle Ward 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 360 gardens.

The newly restored four-tier sunken garden has been returned to its Victorian heyday, displaying a kaleidoscope of colours and plants. The historically important Temple Water area is also being restored, reinstating its original lakeside walk and viewing points. There are woodland and shoreline trails to explore, and you can visit the Georgian farmyard, which featured in the TV series Game of Thrones.
