Enjoy a riverside picnic

Make the most of the long and balmy summer days as you relax beside the river and enjoy a sandwich or two.

Spend the day here 

10 acres of riverside garden means there is plenty of space to discover and explore whilst you're here. Feel yourself relax in the warm breeze accompanied by the gentle sounds of the river. All this fresh air quite often results in hungry tummies so why not pack a picnic and spend the day with us?

Watch wildlife as you relax

You'll find that wildlife comes to you at The Weir Garden as you sit and relax. Quite often you'll see the odd duck come bobbing past as well as songbirds and butterflies in the garden. Come and say 'hello' to our garden team, they'll be busy at work tending the gardens in the lovely weather but are happy to answer any garden questions you have. Don't forget to have a look at the fresh produce we have for sale near the Visitor Reception kiosk and take home some tasty food,freshly dug from our very own garden.
