June 2020 update
Plantation Garden has now re-opened.
One of Norwich’s great treasures, 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. 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.
Also called the Secret Garden, it’s easy to find, beside the Roman Catholic Cathedral on Earlham Road.
Individuals and group tours by arrangement, educational visits welcome.
Tea & Cakes on the lawn on Sundays.
£2 per adult.
Accompanied under 16s free.
