Delightful high Victorian garden - an extraordinary survival from the 19th century

This amazing Victorian garden was created by James Bateman for his collection of plants from around the world. A visit takes you on a global journey from Italy to the pyramids of Egypt, a Victorian vision of China and a re-creation of a Himalayan glen.

The garden features collections of rhododendrons, summer bedding displays, a stunning dahlia walk in late summer and the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, brought from China in the 1850s.

In the Geological Gallery see how Bateman reconciled geology and theology. Travel through time as the gallery depicts the Creation story.

Biddulph Grange Garden stars on BBC1...

Biddulph Grange Garden will feature in the BBC1 series "Glorious Gardens from Above" in Staffordshire on Tuesday 25th November at 3.45pm.

The series sees Horticulturalist Christine Walkden embarking on a journey to explore some of Britain’s most glorious gardens and countryside from a striking new perspective as she takes us “up, up and away” in a hot air balloon for a bird’s eye view. She explores the rich social, horticultural and - most importantly - human history of each treasured garden gem, discovering how it was created, how it’s maintained and how it’s an inspiration to others. Along the way viewers will get a fascinating insight into each county’s history and geography, and meet the people behind the gardens.
