The double herbaceous borders at Blickling are full of colour

The first impression of the garden either from the windows of the Long Gallery or from the East Colonnade will be one of the colour and symmetry of the four large beds in the parterre. 

These shades are echoed high above in the double borders which are designed to give the impression of walking from room to room and from this vantage point you will be able to appreciate the beauty of the topiary and the yew hedges.

The Oxnead Fountain standing in front of the oriental plane (one tree masquerading as five) completes the picture.

The Wilderness collection

Beyond this formal area is the Wilderness, a magnificent collection of mature woodland trees. Stroll along the network of gravel and grass paths and admire the architecture of the Temple (1732) and the Orangery (1792). 

The Orangery and Dell gardens

These gardens are the focal point of an early spring stroll and are new features of our gardeners' labours. They are now turning their attention to a rose garden which is still under construction.

The Secret Garden and the Sitooterie

Either wander round the garden on your own to discover its various delights
including the Secret Garden and the Sitooterie or else join an informative tour led by one of our garden guides (subject to availability on the day).
