About the Gardens

The Bishop of Norwich's historic private gardens are full of delights such as herbaceous borders, a small woodland walk, bee hives and more.

The garden is run organically and includes a boxed herb garden, long shade border with hostas, meconopsis and tree ferns. Also a large wild grass labyrinth and fruit orchard, extensive shrubberies containing many rare and unusual plants, among these being a Hebe planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet in 1840. There is a kitchen garden, bamboo walk, and a popular plant sales area and the garden continues to evolve with new plants and features being introduced year by year.

The Bishop’s Garden works in partnership with a number of other organisations. A small volunteer group give help in the Garden and we have also formed links with Easton College, thus helping horticulture students gain valuable experience. The garden has also forged links with  Harrod Horticultural in showcasing some of their new range of garden structures which were launched at The Chelsea Flower show in 2013.

If you wish to visit the gardens, there is a small pay and display car park outside the entrance and a larger pay and display car park a few further yards down, just off Bishopgate and opposite the Adam and Eve pub.
