Sit and rest awhile on one of the heritage benches and listen to birdsong and the therapeutic sound of the breeze rustling through nearby trees. Immerse yourself in the Nectar Bar where insects buzz. Local musical groups Ad Hoc Recorders and Amarillis will be adding to the soundscape too.

Explore the restored Victorian garden which has been lovingly reclaimed from a derelict site since 2006 to become a thriving productive garden and includes 170’ period greenhouses.

Marvel at over 300 planted heritage fruit, flowers and vegetables, all available in Queen Victoria’s reign 1837 – 1901.

Visit La Choppe where fresh produce, heritage seeds and locally crafted arts and crafts are available.

Come and talk to the gardeners who can explain the methods behind their work and what volunteering in this beautiful space means to them.
