eventually found this little gem, road signs not very clear. Rather expensive admission fee. Lovely walk. Sweet little church. Beautiful tea rooms with delicious food. Would most certainly recommend.

As there is little colour at this time of year we found little to interest us. There were a few tulips but most of the narcissi were over. Perhaps it would be better later.

Beautiful in all seasons. Visit during the week if you can to avoid queues at the lovely tea rooms. Take time to walk in the wider estate & visit the little church

if you like garden, trees, blue poppies, primulas, ponds, streams, tulips, azalea's, rhodies this is the place for you! You can spend literally a whole day in the grounds of Howick Hall, the home of Earl Grey. A brand new visitor centre gives you a real sense of the commitment to representing the global ranges of trees/shrubs etc, sympathetically planted.... More

Good spring gardens with daffodils, rhododendrons, camellias and othe species. Earl Grey tea room very pleasant and nice addition. Relaxed and enjoyable outdoor experience

Bearing in mind we have a toddler and trying to enjoy yourself can sometimes be stressful! We begin our visit by going into the tea room and... More
