Morton Hall Gardens are open from the beginning of April to the end of September. Except for our Tulip Festival in May and our NGS Open Day in late summer, visits are limited to groups with a minimum size of 10 and by appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only. We offer different arrangements for groups of 10-30 visitors and groups of 31 or more visitors. Upon request, there is also a High Tea option at a surcharge.
Individuals have the opportunity to join Blended Groups. All visits last 2 to 2.5 hours. Available dates for the different arrangements are shown in the calendar. To choose the best time for your visit, we advise consulting our list of “Garden Highlights” below.
The Gardens will be open under the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) on 24th August 2024 from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. Last entry is at 3.30pm. The admission charge is £11 per adult. Pre-booking of timed tickets is required. There will be no ticket sales on the day. Food and shop sales are by card only. Children up to the age of 12 go free. Ample parking is available on site. Refreshments are served in the West Garden with plenty of cover from sun or rain. Tickets can be booked by clicking on the yellow banner at the top of the homepage.

Our popular Tulip Festival will return on 4th May to 6th May 2024. Tickets for this event will be available for purchase online from 13 October 2023. Pre-booking is required.
In addition to intricate tulip planting schemes in formal borders and pots, swathes of naturalized bulbs may be enjoyed in our glorious spring meadows and woodland gardens. Many more magical tulip varieties will be on display as cut flowers with experts from Bloms, winners of 70 Chelsea Gold Medals, on hand to advise.
The event will be hosted jointly with the Royal Shakespeare Company, as part of our continuous support of the costume department.
Food will be served all day in a large marquee with generous seating space. A selection of original costumes demonstrating the unparalleled craftsmanship of the RSC costume department will be on display in the Orangery.
The gardens will be open from 10.00am to 5.00pm on each day. All food and shop sales are by card only. Tickets are released in 30 min time slots. Last entry is at 3.30 pm. Tickets for this very special event at £15 per adult can be purchased on the RSC website. The booking site can also be reached by clicking on the red banner at the top of our homepage.
Please note that coach bookings must be arranged with Morton Hall Gardens directly.
For groups of 10-30 visitors, we offer a guided tour through the gardens by the owner and/or head gardener, followed by homemade refreshments. Bookings are available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Morning visits start at 11.00 am and are followed by a light lunch with soups or quiches. Afternoon visits start at 2.00 pm and are followed by an afternoon tea with cakes. The 2024 admission charge for this type of visit is £17 per adult. We offer vegetarian and gluten-free options upon prior request but are, unfortunately, unable to cater for any other specific dietary requirements. Upon request, we can offer a traditional High Tea at a surcharge.
For those who would like to visit the gardens but are not part of a group, there is the opportunity to join a “Blended Group”. Bookings for allocated dates will be accepted by Email or telephone up to a maximum number of 30 persons. Admission charges for 2024 are £17 per person. Reserved dates for Blended Groups are highlighted in orange in the calendar.
Groups of 31 or more visitors will be welcomed by the owner and given a short introduction to the history, design and planting of the gardens. Tea/coffee and homemade muffins will be available. Following the welcome address, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the gardens using a handout map. Members of the garden team, who are positioned throughout the gardens, are happy to answer any questions and provide additional information. Parking for coaches is available. The 2024 admission charge for this type of visit is £13 per adult.
Children are welcome on all types of visits and admission is free of charge.
For all group visits, a 24-hour cancellation policy applies.
All admission charges are donated to charity. Except for NGS Open Days, all proceeds go to the RSC in support of costume making.

Morton Hall Gardens are in Worcestershire in the Midlands. For group visits, please press the intercom button at the iron main gate for admission.
We regret that, due to uneven ground and gravel pathways, some parts of the garden are not accessible for wheelchairs. 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.
Accessible toilets are only available at the Tulip Festival.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept dogs except assistance dogs.
If you would like to stop for lunch on your way to or from your visit, you might want to try one of the following restaurants which can all accommodate both small and large parties: Rose & Crown at Feckenham (6 min), The Red Hart at Kington (9 min), The Flyford Arms at Flyford Flavell (10 min), or Hillers Restaurant at Donnington (9 min).
Why not combine a morning visit to Morton Hall Gardens with an afternoon visit to White Cottage Garden and Nursery where Jan and Mel Bates will welcome you with lovely borders, plants for sale and afternoon tea! To arrange a visit, phone 01386 792414 or send an Email to email@example.com.
