Spring highlights

See the garden come to life with an array of colours this season. You know spring has truly arrived when the sunny shades of daffodils welcome you to the garden. See rows of vibrant tulips as they create a colourful walkway along the canal- from bright orange to deep purple. Return to see the bluebells carpet the ground with bright blue hues. Join one of our weekday tours and see the garden in a whole new light.

Events in the garden

Through late spring and summer, it’s not only the plants that change with the seasons. There’s a wide variety of events and activities for all ages taking place in the garden. At weekends during May and June there will be live music in garden between 12 noon-4pm. Dig out your picnic blanket, top up your glass and let the music carry you away! Later on in the year the garden will once again set the scene for Chapterhouse outdoor theatre productions and QUAD's Outdoor Film Festival.
