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 cafe. Why not book a private garden tour to make the most of your visit?

Bank Holidays & Easter

Due to the popularity of both our Cadbury Easter trail and spring colour season, we regret that we are unable to accept group visits on the weekends during the Easter holidays.
