Discover Wimpole's gardens and take a walk through the Pleasure Grounds along the Explorer Pathway, meandering your way to the Walled Garden surrounded by herbaceous borders and fruit trees.
Wimpole in Bloom
Discover the gardens at their best as they come alive with colour throughout the summer months. From late May right through to August, the Walled Garden showcases a vibrant floral display. From blousy peonies and our tropical glasshouse display to bright herbaceous borders, new highlights bloom week after week. Discover the new rose beds in their first bloom by the Gardeners Cottage and spot a range of wildflowers in the parkland.
To help you keep up to date with what’s blooming at Wimpole and find the best spots in the garden, our garden team will be sharing their highlights on our new display in the visitor centre and on our social channels throughout the season.
We’ll also be sharing the stories of our apple juice, honey and vegetable production – look out for the signs around the gardens.
You can get involved with Wimpole in Bloom by sending us photos of your favourite blooms on the Estate, we’ll be sharing our favourites on our Visitors Flower Gallery in the Stables. Share your photos with us on social media or email them to us here.
Garden and landscape designers have all left their mark on Wimpole in one form or another, including some well known names such as Charles Bridgeman, Capability Brown and Humprey Repton.
The garden you see today has many layers of historical gardens, with each owner wanting to leave their mark, from the iconic South Avenue to the eighteenth century Walled Garden.
In the 18th-century these grounds were where the family took evening strolls and enjoyed picnics. They contained many rare, exotic and unusual plants sourced from all over the world discovered by plant hunters who were widely travelled.
