The Gardens re-open 17th February 2020 and Castle tours re-start 16th March 2020. Please contact us for group tours.

Just a couple of weeks after the closure of the gardens to the public our 25 year old Magnolia insignis has flowered for the first time. It has wonderful pink flowers which cover the plant as you can see from the video.

This plant was originally named Manglietia insignis but the botanists have reclassified them all as Magnolias.
