The Gardens at Wynyard Hall is a destination of choice for group visits and tour operators!

Avid gardeners will spend hours exploring the exquisite plants and flowers in the Rose Garden, Edible Garden and Wild Garden. For the more adventurous, the Woodland Walk provides a 3km trek through the historic woodland. It is filled with beautiful seasonal flowers, historic features and exquisite views of the Lakeside and Parkland. Those who prefer a spot of retail therapy will pour over the beautiful giftware and homeware in the Glasshouse. Or be tempted with delicious treats from the Farm Shop. All visitors will love the Gardens Cafe, where they can enjoy a spot of lunch… or you might prefer to treat all guests to Afternoon Tea in a private area!

Tour of The Gardens for Group Visits

Tours are available for groups of 15+ (subject to availability) and must be arranged prior to your visit.

Our staff and volunteers will inform and inspire guests, with their excellent knowledge of The Gardens and their history. Group Visits and Coach Parties are also able to prearrange a tour with Head Gardener, Mark Birtle. Mark has an extensive knowledge of gardening and considerable experience of the Wynyard Estate. He is only available to conduct tours a couple of times a year… but for avid gardening groups it is a highlight of any tour.

Guided Tour with Head Gardener – £175 per group of 15 / £10 per person thereafter
