We are delighted to have been selected as a beneficiary charity for the Bishop’s Garden Open Day.

Join us on Sunday 9th June 2024 to view one of Norwich’s hidden secrets. The Bishop’s Garden is a 4-acre, walled garden which is steeped in history as there has been a garden of sorts since around 1100 AD when Bishop de Losinga began to build the cathedral and palace.

The organic garden includes a herb garden, long herbaceous borders, a ‘jungle’ walk, large wildflower labyrinth and fruit orchard. There are extensive shrubberies which contain 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, a bamboo walk and a popular plant sales area, and the garden continues to evolve with new plants and features being introduced year by year.

We will be serving refreshments and homemade cakes and there will be some stalls and free craft activities for children to enjoy. There will also be an appearance from the Norwich Rock Choir and a plant sale too.

This event is a must for gardening enthusiasts but it’s also perfect for anyone wishing to enjoy a Sunday afternoon in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Gates open at 1pm and close at 4.30pm with last entry at 4pm. Tickets cost £5.00 for adults, accompanied children under 16 and wheelchair users are free. You can turn up on the day or tickets can be booked in advance by clicking the link below.

Please note that the garden is wheelchair accessible over gravel paths and some slopes. Assistance dogs only. Nearest parking is at the pay and display car park by the Adam and Eve pub.
