Seven miles from the heart of historic Oxford lies Waterperry Gardens, 8 acres of beautiful ornamental gardens with a fascinating history. Established as a School of Horticulture for Ladies by Beatrix Havergal in 1932, it is now home to a plant centre and garden shop, art & craft gallery, gift barn, museum and teashop. You can also visit Waterperry's Saxon Church on the estate and Waterperry House conducts tours of their stunning contemporary frescoes each Friday.
Lose yourself in the wonderful gardens featuring a 200 foot long herbaceous border, formal knot and rose garden, colour and contemporary borders, a waterlily canal, riverside walk and herbaceous nursery stock beds from which all cuttings are taken for the plants sold in the plant centre. The Georgian Walled Garden at Waterperry is currently undergoing an exciting redevelopment to include a cutting garden and orchard along with a water feature and viewing tower.
Waterperry offers a full programme of year round events, including horticulturally themed weekends and a wide range of arts, crafts and gardening courses.
