Cranborne Manor Gardens

A charming garden hidden in the middle of Cranborne village.

The entrance is through the Garden Centre. Walk through the door at the end of the Walled Garden to the Kitchen Garden.

A gate leads to the meadow which is a carpet of fritillary, cowslips and grape hyacinths in the Spring.

Walk across the River Crane, glance up and you will see your face reflected in the Mullusc by David Booth. There are several other stunning sculptures dotted around the garden.

Don’t miss the Church Walk, Rose Garden and Mount Garden as well as the three linked formal gardens.

The Car Park, Toilets and Cafe are part of the Garden Centre.

The estate is still owned by the Marquess of Salisbury.

The gardens are only open on a Wednesday – check on Cranborne Manor’s website before your visit.
