Enjoy the delights of the gardens of Chilworth Manor, by some described as an English Jewel, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. It’s ancient origins date back to William the Conqueror and its gardens were later shaped by two impressive women; Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough in the early 18th century and Daphne, Lady Heald in the 20th century. Today, much of the garden retains reference to the Duchess who bought the manor in 1725 and immediately doubled its size by adding a glorious, Georgian wing.
Explore the extensive grounds and lawns of Chilworth Manor, a former monastery, and enjoy all its beautiful features like a terraced walled garden, herbaceous borders, topiary and fruit trees, stewponds, Japanese themed garden, woodland garden walk and many statues. The alpacas are there as well to greet you!
The children can enjoy their own special Garden Trail, so it’s perfect for all ages! Coffee, teas and home-made cakes are served all day. All proceeds go to the two churches of Chilworth and Chilworth CofE Infant School.
Chilworth Manor Vineyard will be selling their latest Sparkling wines throughout the day.
Garden entry is £7.50 (children go free) in aid of the National Garden Scheme. Book your tickets via https://ngs.org.uk/view-garden/3019
