Visitor information

We are open from the beginning of April to the end of September. With the exception of two Open Days under the National Garden Scheme, all visits last 2 to 2.5 hours. They are limited to groups with a minimal size of 10 and by appointment only. We offer different arrangements for groups of 10-24 visitors and groups of 25 or more visitors. In response to the increasing interest in our gardens, we will offer additional bookings for large groups. Available dates for the different arrangements are shown in the calendar below. In order to help our visitors choose the best time for their visit, we advise consulting our list of “Garden Highlights” below.

National Garden Scheme Open Days

The gardens will be open under the National Gardens Scheme on one Saturday from 10am to 4.00pm in April and September respectively. Visitors will be handed out a map at the entrance and then have the opportunity to explore the gardens and park on their own. Refreshments are not available. The admission charge is £7 per adult.

Groups of 10-24 visitors

For groups of 10-24 visitors, we offer a guided tour through the gardens by the owner and/or head gardener, followed by homemade refreshments served in our orangery. Bookings are available on Tuesday mornings as well as in the afternoon from Tuesday to Thursday. Morning visits start at 11am and are followed by a light lunch with soups or quiches. Afternoon visits start at 2pm and are followed by an afternoon tea with cakes. The admission charge for this type of visit is £10 per adult.

Groups of 25 or more visitors

Groups of 25 or more visitors will be welcomed by the owner and given a  short introduction to the history, design and planting of the gardens. Following the welcome address, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the gardens using a handout map. Members of staff, who are positioned throughout the gardens, are happy to answer any questions and provide additional information. There are no refreshments. Bookings for large groups are available on mornings and afternoons from Tuesday to Thursday. Parking for coaches is available. The admission charge for this type of visit is £8 per adult.

Children are welcome on all types of visits and admission is free of charge.

You might want to combine a visit to us with a visit to Meadow Farm Nursery & Gardens, the home of Rob and Diane Cole which is close by and where you can enjoy another beautiful garden and an interesting nursery including tea/coffee and homemade cakes.

All proceeds from visits to Morton Hall, with exception of the open days under the National Gardening Scheme, are donated to charity. For 2017, we will support a project providing school children with gardening opportunities.

How to get here

Morton Hall Gardens are located in Worcestershire in the Midlands. Please press the intercom button at the iron main gate for admission

Accessibility

We regret that, due to uneven ground and gravel pathways our gardens are not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. We also would like to point out that Morton Hall Gardens are private and that therefore paths and stepping stones are not secured as they would be in a public garden. While we do our best to guide our visitors safely across uneven surfaces, they come at their own risk.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept dogs.
