From dereliction to delight
The privately owned historic gardens are a key part of Croome’s landscape designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. Although we look after the rest of the parkland, the walled garden is owned by Chris and Karen Cronin who acquired it separately and rescued it from ruin nearly 15 years ago.
They have restored many of the buildings and large greenhouses with great care and attention but much more work is still to be carried out. We've been working with Chris and Karen to open the 18th-century walled gardens for visitors to enjoy again in 2016.
What to expect
You'll be able to see the extensive restoration work on the greenhouses, the beautiful border planting, the rose garden and working vegetable plots of the five acres walled garden.
How to find the walled garden
The gardens can only be accessed through Croome’s visitor centre where admission tickets can be purchased.
Walled garden entry prices are below. Please show your National Trust membership card or purchase a parkland admission if you would like to venture around the park and lakeside if you're not a member.
Dogs can't enter the walled garden but tether hooks will be provided outside the entrance gate.
Opening times and admission prices
The walled garden will be open from 10.30am until 5pm (last entry 4.30pm) every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (plus Bank Holidays) from April until the end of September As the walled garden is privately owned there is an additional admission fee of £5 per adult (children free) which goes towards its restoration.
