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.

2024 opening hours and prices

From 29 March until 29 September the Walled Gardens will be open every Saturday and Sunday and every bank holiday from 11am until 5pm (last entry at 4pm) . 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).

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.

To book group tours outside the set opening times, please call 01905 371689 or email

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.

The Walled Gardens - Gallery and Pottery

The Gallery and Pottery in the Walled Gardens will be open from 29 March until 29 September 2024, every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Bank Holidays 11am until 5pm. It's filled with wonderful arts and crafts from some of the best British artists and potters.

The Walled Gardens are closed on Friday. So, every Friday there is no additional entrance fee to visit the Gallery and Pottery (normal National Trust admission to Croome applies). To reach Croome Gallery & Pottery on Fridays, follow the signage to The Walled Gardens' gate, down the hill behind the gazebo.
