Worcestershire Gardens to Visit.

If you are intending to visit Worcestershire, I have listed some of the gardens which we enjoy visiting along with their web addresses. These you can explore via Our Garden@19.

We have several NT Gardens in Worcestershire. 


 Two of the best known are Hanbury Hall, which featured on The Great British Garden Revival on the BBC and Croome Park, which I blogged about in ‘A walk on the wild side’. http://ourgarden19.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/a-walk-on-wild-side.html

Spetchley Park, Worcester is privately owned but with a good garden history due to its connection with Miss Willmott. It also has tea rooms and plant sales. http://www.spetchleygardens.co.uk

Burford House and Garden, Tenbury Wells, includes a garden centre and restaurant.
