Britain's Finest Gardens

Welcome to The Walled

Gardens of Cannington

& Tea Room


Located in the village of Cannington, Somerset, The Walled Gardens of Cannington lie within the grounds of a medieval priory and many of its fine buildings, including the walls of the garden, remain. Having undergone extensive redevelopment, the Gardens were officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward.


The Walled Gardens of Cannington

Since then they have been accredited as a ‘quality assured visitor attraction' by VisitEngland and named as a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) partner garden. The Gardens are home to a Plant Heritage National Plant Collection® of Deschampsia and Santolina. All are displayed in a modern prairie style planting in our Collections Garden.


Glasshouse

The Gardens have classic and contemporary features such as; the 'hot' Herbaceous Border; the Blue Garden; the Sub-Tropical Walk; and a Victorian style fernery, amongst others. There is also a Botanical Glasshouse where arid, sub-tropical and tropical plants can be seen and two smaller gardens within the walls (The Bishop's and Australasian Gardens) are areas of real tranquillity.

Gift Shop

The Gardens have a Tea RoomPlant Nursery and Gift Shop which can all be accessed without the need to visit the Gardens - so there's plenty to see and do for all the family!
