Wimpole Hall and Gardens, Royston
Wimpole Hall is set in a classical 18th century landscape.
The Gardens at Wimpole Hall have a Victorian Parterre with seasonal plantings, lovely displays of narcissus and daffodils followed by tulips in the Spring and plenty more to see throughout the seasons.
The wider landscape was designed by Capability Brown.
The working organic walled kitchen garden, which covers 4.5 acres contains re-built glass-houses by Sir John Sloane and vegetables used in the Restaurant.
The Garden has been planted with hundreds of perennials plus grasses giving great displays in the summer months. This is in addition to the many vegetables which are grown.
Wimpole Hall Gardens also hold the National collection of Walnut trees.
There is a working Rare Breeds Farm, Woodland garden, lakes, Chinese Bridge and trails that give added interest to Wimpole.
The grand hall dating from 1640 is also open and the interiors are well worth seeing. Much of the present interior was enhanced by Elsie, the daughter of Rudyard Kipling.
This is a great day out for the whole family.
