A unique tropical oasis with licensed bar, tea room and gallery


Open Wed - Sun every week and also Bank Holiday Mondays

10am - closing time depends on visitors still here

Walpole Water Gardens is a 3/4 acre garden that is definitely very different. It has been described as "unique in the UK", "an oasis", "amazing", "like being in the tropics".  The garden is sheltered from the wind, faces south and is a real sun trap.  

So don't expect a traditional garden, but if you want to escape for an hour or so from reality then come and visit.  We now have a licensed bar so come and relax by the ponds with a cold drink. We also have probably the best value tea room in East Anglia!

The Gallery features the work of International artist Peter Cousins who also teaches art classes on site.

Peter built the gardens, so if you want to come and pick his brains on how to build ponds and create a garden with an exotic ambience please do. So if we have piqued your interest please pay us a visit.
