Millennium Garden Walk – August

Evening Millennium Garden walk

Our Millennium Garden walk comes at a special time for us, with this August marking the 20th Anniversary since the garden was officially opened in 2000 by Roy Lancaster. Join our knowledgeable Head Gardener, Jonathan Pearce, this summer for an intimate early evening walk around Piet Oudolf’s first public UK garden which, for several years, was the largest established garden Oudolf had designed.  It is therefore an important example of his work.   

Recently hailed as “One of Britain’s most radiant summer gardens” by Countryfile Magazine in June 2019 and named as “one the most beautiful gardens to visit in Britain” by The Times in August 2019, the Millennium Garden promises encapsulating views all year round, particularly in the summer whereby the vibrant colours cascade as far as the eye can see.

Under the watchful eye of Jonathan, a stunning island and ‘Monet-style’ bridge has been developed to the adjacent area creating a looped walkway for visitors connecting the Millennium Garden to the new Wetland Hide overlooking a newly created wetland area and reed-bed.
