Welcome to The Walled
Gardens of Cannington
& Tea Room
Located in the village of Cannington, Somerset, The Walled Gardens of Cannington lie within the grounds of a medieval priory and many of its fine buildings, including the walls of the garden, remain. Having undergone extensive redevelopment, the Gardens were officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward.
then they have been accredited as a
‘quality assured visitor attraction' by VisitEngland and named as a
Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) partner garden.
The Gardens have classic and
contemporary features such as; the 'hot' Herbaceous Border; the Blue
Garden; the Sub-Tropical Walk; and a Victorian style fernery, amongst
others. There is also a Botanical Glasshouse where arid, sub-tropical
and tropical plants can be seen and two smaller gardens within the walls
(The Bishop's and Southern Hemisphere Gardens) are areas of real tranquillity.
Please note: Though we will be open as usual, due to a private event taking place, there may be some disruption in the Walled Gardens from Wednesday 17 June - Wednesday 25 June. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
We are a dog friendly visitor attraction, however, dogs are not allowed in the tea room (welcome to sit in the outdoor patio area of the tea room).
