Botanical Art Exhibition

Saturday 16th February - Sunday 17th March (On our usual open days)

Easton Walled Gardens is excited to announce their second Botanical Art Exhibition. Come and see two accomplished and well-respected artists interpret plants and pollinators through botanical illustration and painting. The exhibitors are part of a distinguished group of botanical artists stretching back to the 16th century. These skills are still used today to record flora throughout the world. They use extraordinary observation skills to reproduce the beauty and detail of the natural world.

The exhibition will take place in the Coach House at Easton Walled Gardens and entry is included with your garden admission fee.

Mother's day

Sunday 31st March

What better place to spend Mother's Day than here at Easton Walled Gardens? The spring bulbs in the cedar meadow will be in flower and we recommend a wander through the woodland walk to view the delicate nodding heads of the Hellebores, which seem to flower forever. Daffodils and Tulips are in flower throughout the gardens and blossom decorates the hedges and trees. Birds are singing and nesting.
Explore 12 acres of relaxing, inspiring gardens and then stop off at the tea room for a light lunch or cream tea. You're also welcome to bring a picnic if the weather is fair. The first 100 Mums will receive a free copy of The English Garden Magazine.

Dog Days

Sundays, throughout August, 4pm - 6pm

We are real dog lovers here at Easton but owing to the nature of the gardens, we are unable to let them visit on a daily basis. With this in mind, we decided to welcome your four-legged friends on special 'Dog Days'. Every Sunday in August, from 4 - 6pm, you can bring along your well-behaved best friend for a lovely evening walk in the gardens.  There is a bowl of water and a dog biscuit for those that join their owners for a cup of tea in the tearoom too!

Please avoid bringing dogs that are in season, thank you.

Dog Days Spot

It's the simple things in life that matter and we want to share those things with you. If you don't fancy making up your own picnic, the tearoom will be open selling delicious light lunches, homemade cakes and cream teas. All you'll need is a blanket!

Why not make the day extra special and book the Meadow Retreat for the day:
