Blossom arch at Calke Abbey

Blossom is arriving early this season, with an ever-blooming arch in the Pleasure Grounds.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The arrival of blossom is one of the most spectacular sights in spring. To mark the occasion, a handmade blossom arch will adorn the Pleasure Grounds.

Walk beneath and take in showers of handcrafted blooms made from recycled materials.

As new buds burst open for the season, the arch will develop, mirroring blossom's glorious transformation.

Visit in February half term to see the start of this creation and then revisit later in spring to take in the completed arch.
