Group visits to Emmetts Garden

The terrace in spring overlooking the rose garden at Emmetts Garden, a National Trust property in Kent

Emmetts Garden is a wonderful day out in any season. Wander through the rock and rose gardens, take in the views from the south garden and catch up over a cream tea at our refreshment point. Why not book a private garden tour to make the most of your visit?

Bank Holidays & Easter
