Michelham Priory

Surrounding Michelham Priory, the 7 acre garden has both formal and natural planting styles.

Sheltered by a clipped yew hedge and box parterre, the Kitchen Garden is both ornamental and productive.

The Cloister Garden is divided into quarters with roses, lilies, herbs and vegetables. It is enclosed by yew hedges.

Wander around the orchard which is planted in rows and underplanted with daffodils and wildflowers.

Stroll along the 50 meter herbaceous border which has been replanted using Echinacea, Rudbeckia, Sedum and ornamental grasses.

Don’t miss the Physic Garden. Planted with both culinary and medicinal herbs which would have been familiar to those in the Middle Ages.

The gardens are closed from mid-December until the end of March – check the website for details.
