Visitor Information


The Walled Gardens of Cannington and Tea Rooms are closed as of today, Friday 20 March until further notice. This is in response to the Prime Minister’s statement advising that people should avoid non-essential contact with others. This includes Mothering Sunday and all planned Easter Activities are also cancelled. 


We appreciate this will be disappointing news, but hope customers will understand the unprecedented nature of the current circumstances.  Ultimately, the health and wellbeing of all is the most important consideration at this time. 


Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
