Join us each Tuesday or Thursday…
Tours of Wollaton’s Secret Walled Garden
Tours of the Walled Garden give you an opportunity to see the 4-acre site with 12 foot high walls and Head Gardens Cottage built between 1783 – 1788.
Explore the work done by volunteers over the last three years to reclaim the site from the ravages of time and the encroachment of ivy and brambles, to grow flowers and vegetables once again.
Join the tour:
- Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 am
- Tours lasts approximately 1 hour

- Car parking charges apply.
Tours start at the black gate at Mr Man’s restaurant (inside Wollaton Park from Wollaton Road) – Nearest car park is opposite the 508 café inside Wollaton Park, so allow time to enquire in the 508 café if unsure of the tour meeting point.
