The Garden Year

There’s something to see all year round at Wentworth Castle Gardens.

Many visitors just love to stroll around, exploring the gardens and discovering plants for themselves – but if you’re new to Wentworth Castle, we thought we would highlight some of our favourite areas to help you.  Don’t forget the Victorian Conservatory has something in flower in every season.
