The Swiss Garden - Open Garden for NGS

This enchanting garden was created in the 'Swiss Picturesque' style for the 3rd Lord Ongley in the early C19 and reopened in July 2014 after a major HLF-funded restoration. Serpentine paths lead to cleverly contrived vistas, many of which focus on the thatched Swiss Cottage. Beautiful wrought-iron bridges, ponds, sweeping lawns and the magnificent Pulhamite-lined Grotto Fernery have all been given a new lease of life by this landmark restoration. Autumn interest in the Swiss Garden consists of lovely leaf colour on trees, including our stunning Acer palmatum and Robinia pseudoacacia Frisia on the East Lawn, and splashes of colour from some late flowering plants such as Colchicum autumnale (Autumn Crocus) and Sternbergia lutea in the Rock Garden.
Thur 24 Feb (10-5). Admission £15, Children free. Light refreshments at the Runway Cafe. Thur 3 Nov (10-4). Admission £10, Children free. Times:10:00 to 16:00. Open for charity.
