Summer Sundays at Barnsdale Gardens

It's all happening at Barnsdale! Every Sunday during July and August, we're offering family events, free with Garden entry.

Tree Trail: 7 July, 12pm - 4pm

Come for a tour of the many different specimen trees at Barnsdale Gardens, or take the kids to follow their own tree spotting trail around the gardens. Either way, you'll discover some great varieties for your own outside spaces.

Flower Arranging Day: 14 July, 12pm - 4pm

Meet the members of Rutland Flower Club and learn some great tips and tricks for creating your own artistic flower arrangements.

Roses Day with Stuart Dixon: 21 July, 12pm - 4pm

A special day of informal walks and talks hosted by writer, broadcaster and rose fan Stuart Dixon.


So if you’re looking for a particular variety or just love roses, join Stuart to tour the Gardens and learn more- there’s no booking necessary and you’re welcome to join him for as long as you like.

Plant clinic: 28 July, 12pm - 4pm

Join our creepy-crawlies expert, Sally Cunningham, to find out about garden pests and diseases and what to do if you have them at home.

Just want to come for a spot of retail therapy and a great lunch or afternoon tea? Entry to the Barnsdale Gardens Gift Shop, Nursery and Tea Room is free.
