The gardens at Howick Hall are fabulous whatever month you visit. When we visited in July, many of the flowers were in full bloom with a mass of colour and wonderful scents. A superb walk awaits you. There are plenty of seats around the property...More

These gardens are huge and if one had the energy to complete all the walks it's a day long trip out. We did one of the short routes. Loved the on site church with its ww1 exhibition. Very interesting churchyard and published material on some...More

I think we paid around £14 for 2 of us. That's with a concession for over 60s. It's a beautiful place.
