One of Norwich’s great treasures, Plantation Garden is a 3 acre Grade II English Heritage registered garden established over 100 years ago in an abandoned chalk quarry, 600 yards from the city centre. Also referred to by locals as Norwich’s Secret Garden, it’s tucked away beside the Roman Catholic Cathedral on Earlham Road. It’s an oasis of calm in Norwich city centre.
Find a huge gothic fountain, flower beds, lawns, Italianate terrace, ‘Medieval’ terrace wall, woodland walkways, 10 metre long Victorian-style greenhouse and rustic bridge. The garden is heavily wooded and provides a habitat for wildlife, making it a haven of peace and tranquillity and a glimpse into a bygone age.
In summer find a big programme of live music, performance and family shows, outdoor cinema and wonderful Sunday afternoon homemade teas!
Individuals and group tours by arrangement, educational visits welcome.
