WYKEN HALL GARDENS
Formal gardens crammed with topiary, herbs, roses, box, fruit trees and meandering peacocks, guinea fowl and chickens snuggle up to the Elizabethan manor house, with head-high yew hedges serving as windbreaks, essential in East Anglia, a region renowned for its ‘lazy winds’.
The gardens will be open free of charge from 1st April from 2pm to 5pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
We owe it to each other to stay safe, so please keep a reasonable distance from fellow visitors. Please use the normal car park and walk up to the garden.
In these trying times we are opening our garden free of charge.
Unfortunately we don’t allow dogs in the the garden.
A garden full of year round interest
From spring, drifts of narcissi and fritillaria fill the meadows and bulbs, stems and hellebores add colour in the winter garden. Tulips then follow in pots and borders along with blossom in the orchard. From mid June the rose garden reaches it peak of blooms and perfume along with many companion plants including delphiniums and geraniums. The east terrace holds interest throughout the year with the herb and knot gardens and borders. From July onwards the Red Hot borders start to put on a dazzling mix of colours with dahlias,heleniums, tithonia and zinnias lasting into autumn.
