The gardens at Walcot Hall cover over 30 acres, including one of the finest Arboretums in Britain with a rich profusion of tree, shrub and herbaceous plantings. Different trees are ever being added and amongst the notable specimens is a huge Douglas Fir, planted by Lord Powis in 1842 and once one of the largest trees of its kind in Britain.
The Arboretum is open from 12 noon to 5 pm on every day except Saturdays, from April through to September. The charge is £3 per adult and details can be found in the car park at main entrance to Hall.
The gardens at Walcot Hall are open to the public for only two days a year during the Whitsun May Bank holiday weekend, when the display of Rhododendrons and Azaleas are at their best – see details within the Events section of this website.
Walcot Hall has some of the most outstanding gardens and views of the whole of Shropshire and beyond. They offer the perfect backdrop for your wedding day or holiday.
