The gardens at East Riddlesden Hall

View of the house across the garden

Let your senses come alive this summer as the sweet scent of mock orange fills the air and shades of purples, pinks and blues create a cottage garden canvas.

The gardens are bursting with colour and are waiting to be enjoyed.

The Wild Garden

The Wild Garden is starting to move away from centre stage and make way to allow the formal garden to shine. The borders are looking natural and are being allowed to grow into a meadow. It's a great place to sit back and listen to the local wildlife or enjoy a book in.

The Formal Garden

Summer is the best time to see the formal garden. There are roses galore, fox gloves, hydrangea, aliums and lots more. The garden is bursting with shades of pinks, purples and blues to give it a cottage garden feeling.  


Birdsong can be heard throughout the gardens as the birds invite you to take a seat and pause for a few minutes to listen to the sounds of their gentle melodies. Even though nature is at its busiest, you don’t have to be - stop and take time to simply absorb all that's happening around you.

Join every Tuesday in July and September to meet the gardener to learn about how we keep the gardens looking at their best.
