Family enjoying the Gunby gardens

Enjoy lots of colour at Gunby this spring as the gardens are coming back to life.

Daffodils

During early spring, don't miss the abundance of daffodils in the orchard near Orchard Gallery, the former squash court nestled in the gardens. Orchard Gallery is open daily for art exhibitions from mid-March until the end of October.

Colourful borders

By combining contrasting colours, the garden team have created beautiful bands of colour alongside paths in the walled garden.

Take a seat

As you walk around the spring garden, take a moment to rest in Gunby's blue temple and cherish a moment of peace in spring sunshine.

Spring wildflower walk

Take a walk through the meandering spring wildflower walk at the south-side of the house. See if you can spot wood anemonies, snakeshead fritillaria and an abundance of blossom.
