a Garden or Park in the town of Biddulph, in the county of Staffordshire

About Biddulph Grange Garden

This remarkable garden surrounds a grand house with a history of fluctuating fortunes. The gardens were originally the creation of James and Maria Bateman who came to the house in 1840, they were helped by their friend Edward Cooke, a marine painter. After various owners and much neglect the property was bought by the National Trust in April 1988. Much work has been undertaken by the trust to make these gardens the sheer delight they are today.

Walking the pathways as you roam from one garden to another is like making a miniature tour of the world. Each garden joyously reflects countries from around the world, showing all that is best in plants, flowers, shrubs and exotic specimens from countries as diverse as China to Italy. An air of anticipation takes over as you move from one garden to another, for each is breathtakingly beautiful and often seemingly more glorious than the other. Here is just a random selection of what you can expect to see.

A formal Italian garden reflects the colour and warmth of this enchanting country, whilst the splendours of Egypt are represented by yews clipped to form pyramids and show fascinating sphinx sculpture and in the China garden a golden idol looks down on exotic plants brought back by Victorian plant collectors.

All told the gardens cover some 15 acres, they are a triumph of year round colour from the softness of delicate spring flowers to an abundance of vivid autumn glory.

Other experiences in the gardens include; a Dahlia Walk, a Glen, Rhododendron Avenue, Arboretum, Wellingtonia Avenue, an amazing Rockery, Limes, a Cherry Orchard and a beautiful scented Rose Garden.

Gardeners visiting will find much to inspire them, be it for a large or small patch of ground. But you do not have to be a gardener to enjoy the gardens at Biddulph, their wonderful atmosphere and quiet tranquillity makes them a perfect visit for all nature lovers and anyone wishing for pleasure filled hours in a calm, away from it all, haven.
