Garden tours

Join our Gardener, Wil Goodridge on a tour around Middleton Hall’s vibrant eighteenth-century Walled Garden, Herb Garden and Orchard where you will discover nature and history combined. 

Middleton Hall was the home of seventeenth-century naturalists, Francis Willughby and John Ray who made ground-breaking discoveries into the natural world. It is fitting that nature remains at the heart of their home centuries on, boasting a Walled Garden and a thirty-acre Site of Special Scientific Interest.

On your tour with Wil, you will discover how horticulture and history intertwine at our fantastic estate.
