The end of the 2021 Open Wednesday Season
The Walled Garden is now closed for 2021

The Walled Garden is now closed for the 2021 Season 

As we close the doors in the Walled Garden for the final Open Wednesday we say a heartfelt thank you to all the visitors this season. It has been a difficult year for many people and we have been constantly reminded of the value of accessible open spaces, peaceful safe environments and of course, the wonder of the garden. Next year we look forward to welcoming you all for the 21st anniversary of the Walled Garden Volunteer Project. Until then …

‘If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.’
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Next year our Open Wednesdays will run from 4th May 2022 to 28th September 2022

Open Wednesday at The Walled Garden

The Walled Garden is open from `10.30 - with last entry at 2.30 every 

The Walled Garden offers an excellent opportunity to visit a unique Capability Brown designed Walled Garden.  Commissioned by noted botanist Lord Bute, the garden has been adapted by successive owners to suit the changing horticultural fashions of their day.  Each owner has left their mark, and the rich history of the garden and wider estate continues to be discovered.

Today the Walled Garden is the focus of a fascinating volunteer project and the volunteers continue to be revive, restore and re-imagine the garden and service buildings for the enjoyment of all.

Tickets are available in time slots with numbers closely monitored for your peace of mind.  Visitors are assisted in the garden by our new signs and aided by members of our Volunteer team, happy to help and offer a historic tour of the garden free with entry.  

Parking is free in the adjacent Walled Garden Car Park and the Woodyard Coffee Shop is just a short walk through the Woodland Walk for hot and cold drinks and snacks.  (Free Parking also available directly outside the Woodyard Coffee Shop)


And you can now book for your group/society/organisation or friendship group to come to the garden where they will be kept within their (socially distanced) group for a fascinating tour of the Walled Garden and its historic service buildings.

Tickets will be available from January 2022
