Entertainers and storytellers

Whether you are a devoted horticulturalist or simply appreciate plants you will be sure to find something a bit unusual to add some interest to your garden. The popular event is a great day out for the whole family, there are plenty of fun children's activities and a band concert will provide the perfect ambience.

 

     

The gardens were created by William Graham Vivian and three important trees planted by him can be found in front of the Castle; one Wellingtonia 'Sequiodendron giganteum ' and two Monterey Cypress 'Cupressus macrocarpa' , one a fastigated form which is also one of the tallest recorded in Britain.

On his death in 1921 the estate passed to his nephew Algernon, known as The Admiral who owned it until his death in 1952. it was the Admiral who had the greatest influence on the gardens as we see them today.
