Come and see one of Norwich’s hidden secrets. The Bishop’s Garden is a 4-acre, walled garden steeped in history. There has been a garden of sorts since around 1100 AD, when Bishop de Losinga began to build the cathedral and palace.

The organic garden includes a herb garden, long herbaceous borders, a ‘jungle’ walk, large wildflower labyrinth and fruit orchard. There are extensive shrubberies which contain many rare and unusual plants, among these being a Hebe planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet in 1840. There is a kitchen garden, a bamboo walk and a popular plant sales area, and the garden continues to evolve with new plants and features being introduced year by year.

Refreshments and homemade cakes, stalls, plant sale and free craft activities for children to enjoy. Performance by the Norwich Rock Choir.

Open 1pm to 4.30pm (last entry 4pm).

Tickets £5.00 for adults, accompanied children under 16s and wheelchair users free. Pay on the gate or book tickets can be booked in advance at:

Please note that the garden is wheelchair accessible over gravel paths and some slopes. Assistance dogs only. Nearest parking is at the pay and display car park by the Adam and Eve pub.
