In celebration of our famous Doddington Iris display and The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we’re opening the Gardens daily 22 May – 5 June.

Admire the elegant and regal beauty of the Iris display in the romantic setting of the Walled West Garden and enjoy pops of peonies, alliums, white wisteria and much more in the herbaceous borders. 

In the Wild Garden, the rhododendrons and azaleas are providing a riot of colour and families can enjoy croquet on the Croquet Lawn (2-5 June) and a Crown Trail (daily) in celebration of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

There is also the chance to see a unique collection of Dodsworth Irises cultivated by expert Bryan Dodsworth in our Walled Kitchen Garden.

Gardens open daily 22 May – 5 June, 10am-4pm

Last entry one hour before closing

Tickets available to pre-book online or on arrival at the Gatehouse

*Please note that the timing of the iris display is subject to weather conditions. We currently advise visiting sooner rather than later for the peak display.*
