Explore this beautiful heritage landscape of woodland, lakes and an arboretum of trees from across the globe. Among them are many rarities, from Wollemi pines to dawn redwoods, and three champion trees. Highlights through the seasons include spring blossom, flowering shrubs, vibrant autumn foliage and winter snowdrops. The 18th-century walled garden combines traditional and contemporary planting for spring and summer interest, with the longest double border in Essex.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you
Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.
If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.
Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
