Biddulph Grange Garden - National Trust

This amazing Victorian garden was created by James Bateman for his collection of plants from around the world. A visit takes you on a global journey from Italy to the pyramids of Egypt, a Victorian vision of China and a re-creation of a Himalayan glen.

The garden features collections of rhododendrons, summer bedding displays, a stunning dahlia walk in late summer and the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, brought from China in the 1850s.

In the Geological Gallery see how Bateman reconciled geology and theology. Travel through time as the gallery depicts the Creation story.

Heritage Open Days: Biddulph Grange Garden

  • 11 — 12 September 2015

This high Victorian garden is a maze of compartments or garden 'rooms' each with their own microclimate and theme, form the Italian terrace, to the Himalayan Glen to the Chinese garden. Each 'room' is hidden from the next by a series of steps, valleys, rockworks, hedges and tunnels, all a perfect place for exploration.

Spend your day feeding the fish, enjoying the view from the Chinese watch tower, having a tour of the geological gallery (check on the day for tour times), or simply enjoying a cup of tea on the terrace overlooking the Dahlia walk.
