Returning for 2023 - Our Heritage Garden Tours and Cream Tea
Discover the fascinating story behind the design and creation of the Brockhole gardens by landscape architect Thomas Mawson on our Heritage Garden Tour.

Tour length: 45 mins

Our guided tour leads you through the gardens, gradually revealing the history of the family and house and how the garden was designed and created at the end of the 19th Century. The tour finishes in our restored Kitchen Garden, with an opportunity to chat to one of our Gardeners and visit the Kitchen Garden Exhibition in the Summerhouse.
We're also including cream tea, a homemade scone, jam, clotted cream, and a pot of tea in our café. To enjoy before or after your garden tour, to redeem simply bring your booking confirmation to the till.
