lovely gardens and wooded walks. The tea room is lovely. A must for devotees of earl grey tea. Also a visit which is not overcome with tourists.

Summer is the best time to see the formal bog / water gardens at Howick - and they certainly did not disappoint. The rose gardens were supposed to be out of season but were still lovely. Howick has also an extensive (and well signposted!) woodland walk and a fabulous tea-room - the story goes that the owning family actually coined... More

The bog garden was exquisite as was Lady Howard's private garden (for an extra £1). Most of the rest of the grounds were wooded - with very extensive walks. There was no access to the Hall apart from the tea-room.

This is the first visit here and we will be back. At first glance the map makes you think that there will be LOADS of walking, but it doesn't have to be like that. The paths are well maintained and there are way markers so you can identify where you are. Saw the first Red Squirrel outside of Scotland here... More

Beautiful gardens with much to see every month. The bog garden in June is superb. Very nice cafe where you can get Earl Grey tea that originated here.
