Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our gardens for a break from the world!

Follow the winding escarpment lined with giant beech trees, ancient moss-covered walls and spring snowdrops and daffodils along the north side of the Tower. Look right to find the stonemason’s name concealed in the randomly-sized stones. As you pass through the ancient doorway, notice the oak trees planted by royalty on either side of you. Discover now three separate, very different walled gardens as narrow openings lead from one to another, almost as if you are walking into different open-air rooms.

Access to the Gardens is via a steep, uneven pathway. Each of the gardens is flat and has a designated path. Garden paths consist of sand, shale or gravel depending on the area. There are, however, steps between some of the gardens. For more information, please refer to the Facilities and Access page on our website. 

Please note that on the 3rd Sunday of every month we hold our popular Farmers' Market. On these days a site admission fee of £2 per car / pedestrian bubble will be payable on entry for all visitors. On special event days other site admission fees may be payable. Please see www.hoghtontower.co.uk for dates and details any special events before booking your garden admission.
