Three miles east of Worcester surrounded by glorious countryside and deer...

Three miles east of Worcester surrounded by glorious countryside and deer park lays one of Britain’s best-kept secrets. Spetchley is a garden for all tastes containing one of the biggest private collections of plant varieties outside the major botanical gardens. Spetchley is not a formal paradise of neatly manicured lawns or beds but rather a wondrous display of plants, shrubs and trees woven into a garden of many rooms and vistas. It is certainly an ever changing garden and one undergoing many changes. The Revival Project is in its infancy; a ten year project aimed at reviving Spetchley's wonderful legacy. Please follow us to see how we get on and come and visit to view this wonderful garden and watch its transformation.

A lovely visit at these great gardens. Although early in the season for certain features (the walkways will look gorgeous in full bloom) there is still so much to see. With a walled garden, statues, lake walks, beautiful house views, fountains and so much more we spent a good 4+ hours wandering around in the sunshine. Well laid out with... More

Really lovely afternoon. This is not 'just' a garden, I'm really not one for walking round looking at plants... However I was fascinated with this place and the plants! My little girl is 4 and gets very easily bored. Not here!!! She loved it. The staff at reception were lovely, including Eddie, and really child friendly. So much fun following... More

Enjoyed a weekend visit to the gardens. Generally really enjoyed the experience, our only grumble was the service in the cafe.

Brought my parents along for another visit. We came in may the last time. Lovely afternoon and enjoyed a nice cup of tea in the cafe. Entrance £7 each but dad is registered disabled so a companion gets in free. 2 cappuccinos and 2 teas in cafe was £9

Always enjoy visiting the gardens. Visit a few times a year and always new vistas as plants flower and leaves change shades. Even on busy days can find somewhere secluded. The lake has been landscaped and a number of restoration projects going on which are now nearing completion. Staff are always helpful with questions as are members of the family... More

After reading some less than complimentary reviews we were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the gardens. My husband and toddler had a most enjoyable afternoon. It was like a magical secret garden, wild and glorious with paths to explore and fairy doors to find! We found it a perfect way to take in the late September sun and wished... More
