Packing a Picnic?


There’s no better way to celebrate summer than packing a picnic and heading off on an outdoor adventure. With acres of garden filled with interesting plants to see and smell, Rowallane has lots to offer explorers and adventurers. Our garden has many perfect picnic spots so that you can stay refreshed as you explore.

As you enter our garden, you will see our Visitor Centre. Turn around you will see a grassy knoll that is surrounded by large rhododendrons. This is a great spot for laying down your blanket and tucking into your picnic. Why not enjoy playing roly poly down the hill?
Throughout the garden, we have lots of sturdy benches like this one, each with their own great viewing spot. Whether you want to stop for a quiet ponder and some food on the go or you want to gather friends and family around for a summer lunch, settle at one of the benches at Rowallane.
Don’t worry if you experience a summer rain shower while you are at our garden because our beautiful bandstand is another great spot for picnics, for both larger groups or romantic lunches for two. 
Summer is here, so wrap up your sandwiches and come explore our garden!
