About Wentworth Castle Gardens

Despite a turbulent past, this breath-taking Grade 1 Registered Park and Gardens has plenty to explore in its 600 acre landscape. From Gothic Castle Folly, to Victorian Conservatory, from avenues with surprises at the top to rolling designed Parkland there is something for everyone. Take in a stroll through the Deer Park along the banks of the Serpentine Lakes and spot our two resident herds of deer or Head further into the Ancient Woodlands, carpeted in bluebells in May.

Further up the estate discover wilderness gardens, the National Collections of Rhododendron, Azalea and Magnolia ablaze in colour in May and June. Through the summer months, explore the winding paths, find the Fernery and picnic beneath the medieval style turrets of the Castle Folly.

Events throughout the year can be found on our website.
