The privately owned historic walled gardens are a key part of Croome’s landscape designed by ‘Capability’ Brown. Separate to the rest of the parkland, which is cared for by the National Trust, the walled gardens are home to large greenhouses, a rose garden and vegetable plots.

The Walled Gardens are now closed until 2024

The Walled Gardens close for important conservation work in autumn and winter and will re-open in March 2024.

Visiting the walled gardens

Chris and Karen Cronin rescued the walled gardens from ruin in the year 2000. They’ve restored many of the buildings and large greenhouses with great care and attention but much more work is still to be carried out with the help of a team of volunteers and gardeners.

You'll be able to chat to volunteers and see the extensive restoration work on the greenhouses, the beautiful border planting, the rose garden and working vegetable plots of the five-acre walled gardens.

Entrance to the garden is £5 per adult. Under-18s have free entry and must be accompanied by a paying adult (normal admission to Croome applies).

To book group tours outside the set opening times, please call 01905 371006.

For more information visit the Walled Gardens website.

Assistance dogs only are allowed to enter the walled gardens, but tethering hooks are provided outside the entrance gate.
