Early Spring at Howick Hall Gardens - still lots to see

Rhododendron grande is now flowering in Silverwood - only the second time since it was planted in 1990. Other plants to look out for are Hellebore, Lungwort, Trilliums, Daffodils and Camellias.

Visitor feedback we have received:

Favourite of all country house gardens visited (lots!) from Cornwall to Wester Ross.  Rich, calm, natural, with a blend of natural and attractive planting.  An inspiration!

"I think it is worth flying all the way from Australia to immerse myself in the tranquility and beauty of this place." 

"I am 95 years old and this is one of the best visits I have had to a historic estate in my lifetime."

 "A very keen guide - very enjoyable and informative afternoon."

 "This is a jewel, informative about trees and the Bog Garden is out of this world."

"Gorgeous woodland walk, unexpected pond complete with swans.  Fab coffee cake!".
