NEXT OPEN GARDEN:

Sunday, 20 September 2020 – Sunday, 11th October 2020, 10am–4pm (exclusions apply below)**

**PLEASE NOTE WE WILL BE CLOSING AT 1PM ON SATURDAY, 26TH SEPTEMBER WITH LAST ENTRY AT 12.30PM

Important Notes:

We are delighted that we are able to safely reopen the Gardens, following government guidelines, a risk assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and maintain social distancing. Each group will be required to leave a contact name and number. We ask you not to turn up in groups that are larger than six.

We will have a one way system in place to enter and exit both the Gardens and The Tearooms. The toilets in the tearooms will be closed but the outdoor toilets to the rear of the greenhouses will be operating as normal. The tearooms will be open but running on a limited menu and we ask if you can clear your rubbish into the provided bins after you have finished at your table.

At present we are not requesting visitors to book a time to visit but we may have to reevaluate this after the first few days depending on how busy we are. We hope you understand.

Award-winning gardens

in a setting of lakes, canals and parkland

Chippenham Park is a thriving family estate. The house, gardens, and park were created at the very end of the 17th century by Admiral Lord Russell with permission from William II.

The gardens have been awarded the highest two-star rating by the Good Gardens Guide and are notable for their vast swathes of snowdrops and aconites in late winter followed by a superb spring show of daffodils, hellebores, spring bulbs and blossoms.

We are open several times throughout the seasons from the first snowdrops to the last late-autumn colour and for extended periods from Feb–April including a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt for children every year.

Our fully licensed Potting Shed Tearooms are open alongside the Open Garden dates, serving delicious home-made hot food, teas, coffee and cakes.

We are listed on Great British Gardens.

300 Years of Garden History

The gardens were designed as an ‘Anglo Dutch’ landscape comprising canals, park, woodland and formal gardens. They were subsequently informalised by 18th and 19th century designers including William Earnes and Samuel Lappidge.

More recently the gardens were extended and stretch to over 40 acres of formal and informal areas, borders, lakes and woodland walks.
