The Rose Garden is a real feast for the senses with 750 David Austin rose plants and 100 varieties filling the air with a glorious fragrance.
On the 20th of June from 10.30am to 2pm, we are privileged to have a Talk and Tour with Michael Marriott of David Austin Roses. Join one of the country’s leading rose experts for a fascinating talk offering advice on choosing and caring for the best varieties. Tickets for this are available to buy online now.
Other interesting parts of the Garden is the Italian Garden offering a further seasonal surprise, in as much as the alliums are well and truly in bloom surrounding the charming water feature there – a stunning sight to behold, you can’t fail to be impressed by them.
The towering kinetic wind art and mythological figures continue to transform the historic garden into a stunning outdoor gallery, for a special 20th anniversary exhibition. At once modern and classical, there’s something to suit every taste – and many of them are even interactive and tactile. Perfect for keeping younger visitors enthralled as you take in the vast display of plants on display at this time of year.
