In the garden

The garden is truly coming to life as the season changes and the days are growing warmer and lighter. Delicate colourful primroses can be seen popping up everywhere as you walk around the garden and grounds; in the grass, walls and even through the cobbles at your feet.

The sheltered walled King’s garden hold Godolphin’s two Magnolia trees, their big blooms capturing your vision as you enter the garden, but don’t forget to look down at the flower  beds, filling with tulips and hyacinths.

The raised turf walkways in the side garden are perfect for getting your spring wildflower fix. An array of fritillary’s, daffodils and primroses all at eye level as you walk around the peaceful garden.
