Step into spring and explore the beautiful gardens of Doddington Hall (booking essential).


For many, the Gardens at Doddington are just as spectacular as the Hall itself. Remaining faithful to the original Elizabethan layout, mellow walls provide the framework for the formal East Front and West Gardens. Beyond the West Gardens begin the lovingly restored Wild Gardens. Over the generations, most recently by Antony and Victoria Jarvis and Claire and James Birch, the gardens at Doddington have been restored, cared for, nurtured and developed to their fullest potential.


Gardens open on Sundays only, 10am-4pm with last entry at 3pm.

Admission: Adult £7.50 / Child £3.50 (under 4yrs free) / Family £19


Doddington season ticket holders, Historic Houses members and RHS members benefit from free entry to the Gardens during normal opening times. We also accept the 2 for 1 Gardeners’ World card. Please present your card along with your e-ticket on arrival at the Gatehouse.


Booking is essential – for all tickets including free tickets so that we can monitor visit numbers. Please adhere to current restrictions (six people or two households allowed to meet outdoors).




Current highlights: Wander down the Cherry Walk and enjoy the traditional Japanese custom of hanami (flower viewing) as you gaze upon clouds of cherry blossom and take in the hum of nature and birdsong. A spectacular pageant of spring bulbs sweeps under the ancient sweet chestnut trees and through into the lovingly restored wild garden with golden drifts of daffodils, wood anemones, dog’s tooth violets, snakeshead fritillaries and much more.


Please note that extensive restoration work to the fabric of the building and some garden walls is currently in progress so please respect any barriers in place to keep you safe. Find out more.
