Garden Portrait


Have you ever tried to take the perfect selfie or the perfect portrait? Look no further than Red House.


Flowers are blooming in the Red House garden as spring arrives. To celebrate this festival of colour and new life we are creating a larger than life photo frame in our garden. The frame will move around the garden through the half term week to guarantee that you will always find the best photoshoot.

Half term trail


As we celebrate William Morris’s legacy of craftsmanship in 2019, we are combining craft and nature in our May half term trail. Join us to learn how to craft fake flowers to take home. But we won’t make it too easy for you; you’ll have to find the instructions in the garden.
