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.
