Marvel at the gardens of the magnificent Rippon Lea estate!
Experience the magnificent gardens of Rippon Lea during our 45 minute tours starting this September.
The garden is complex and covers almost 14 acres, which includes a large lake, extensive shrubberies and flower gardens, an orchard of historically significant fruit varieties, a fernery, rose gardens and many other features of historical, landscape and architectural interest, all forming the setting for the polychrome brick mansion completed in 1868.
The garden is tended by a Head Gardener, staff of five gardeners and a team of volunteers.
All tours depart from the Gatehouse
