Norfolk Gardens To Visit

There are so many amazing Norfolk gardens to visit throughout the year, and all raise money for charity.  This is your chance to discover some of these fantastic gardens which you wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy due to the fact that most of them are private.

And you don't even have to enjoy gardening to visit these gardens!  It's just wonderful to be given a chance to wander around some exceptionally beautiful gardens and to enjoy the scent and colour that undoubtedly abounds.

Over the years, gardens and open spaces have become very important in balancing our physical and mental health, as well as being a place to relax, enjoy and watch, as the seasons provide an array of foliage and colour. 

Some of these Norfolk gardens are real hidden gems;

  • many are in historic houses
  • others are privately owned properties and gardens
  • some have fantastic walled gardens with glass houses and cold frames
  • meander along beautifully landscaped borders
  • admire the snowdrops and bluebells in some of the private woodlands  
  • more often than not, pick up some bargain plants!

This page will become a growing list of Norfolk gardens that you can visit.
