Bishop’s Garden Open Event in aid of Home-Start Norfolk

Sun 6 Jun at 10.30 am - 4.00 pm

Bishops House Garden, NR3 1SB

Home-Start Norfolk are delighted to welcome visitors to the Bishop's Garden on Sunday 6 June. A rare opportunity to visit these beautiful and tranquil private walled gardens in the heart of Norwich.

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

The garden is organically run and includes a herb garden, long herbaceous borders, ‘jungle walk’, large wildflower labyrinth and fruit orchard, extensive shrubberies containing many rare and unusual plants, including a Hebe planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet in 1840.

The garden continues to evolve with new plants and features being introduced every year. Plants will be available for sale on the day.

Refreshments including Tea and Cake will be on sale during the event. You are also welcome to bring your own picnic if you wish.

There are three open sessions during the day in order to limit visitors at any one time and maintain social distancing guidelines.

Home-Start Norfolk provides a unique service to families with young children who are facing challenging times. With a network of trained volunteers and professional staff, Home-Start Norfolk offers tailored 1-to-1 support to around 300 families every year.

With the pandemic impacting on families’ lives during the last year, Home-Start Norfolk’s work is needed more than ever before.

Entry is £5 per adult with accompanied children under 16 and wheelchair users free. Please reserve your ticket for the requested timed session. You will need to pay the entry fee on arrival at the gate. Those without a pre-reserved ticket may not be granted entry as numbers are limited due to safety guidelines.

Sorry no dogs except for assistance dogs.

There is a small pay and display car park just outside the gates and a larger one next to the Adam and Eve pub less than 5 minutes walk from the entrance gate.
