FLOWERS will be in full bloom this weekend as Packington Hall opens its garden to raise cash for charities.

On Sunday (June 18) visitors will be able to see the Millennium Rose Garden, wildflower meadow and go on woodland walks around the Meriden manor house.

There is also the chance to see the newly restored walled garden with bespoke oak fruit cage and cutting garden and where a huge variety of vegetables is grown for Lord and Lady Guernsey’s and to provide veg boxes for staff and tenants.

Packington is the setting for an elegant Capability Brown landscape. Designed from 1751, the Gardens include a Serpentine Lake, impressive cedars of Lebanon, Wellingtonias and a 1762 Japanese bridge.

Home-made teas are available on the Terrace, or Pompeii Room if wet.




Wheelchair access is possible but please note there are no paths in the garden.

The gravel terrace where teas are served is easily accessible.


Admission costs £7.50 for adults and children go free.

Dogs on short leads welcome.
