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 Wednesday, Friday, Sunday & Bank Holiday Monday only, 10am-4pm.
Last entry one hour before closing.
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. Online ticketing ends at 9am for each day. Limited tickets will be available on arrival at the Gatehouse.
Please note that the Hall is currently clad in scaffolding due to extensive restoration work to the fabric of the building so please respect any barriers in place to keep you safe. Find out more.
