Ripley Castle Garden Tour

‘Meet the Gardener’ 

Join one of our Ripley Castle gardeners for a walking tour around the gardens. 

You will get the opportunity to learn about the daily workings of the four acre Victorian walled gardens which contain some of Britain’s largest herbaceous borders. The kitchen gardens contain rare collections of herbs and spices, fruit trees and vegetables. 

Joining the event is simple; book your place by calling 01423 770152 or email didle@ripleycastle.co.uk. The event price is £3.00pp payable at the Castle Gift Shop where the tour starts at 13:30 

Then take the time to walk around the wooded pleasure grounds which leads to the lakeside path where herds of Fallow graze peacefully under ancient oak trees. There are fine vistas over the lake and Capability Brown styled Deer Park, and a walk around the lake will take you over bridges and waterfalls. 

Why not make a day of it by enjoying lunch or afternoon tea in the Castle’s Tearoom or Boar’s Head Inn.

Please note; These tours are dependant on 6 persons or more having booked and unfortunately will not take place with fewer.
