Chippenham Park is a thriving family estate. The house, gardens, and park were created at the very end of the 17th century by Admiral Lord Russell with permission from William II. The gardens have been awarded the highest two-star rating by the Good Gardens Guide and are notable for their vast swathes of snowdrops and aconites in late winter followed by a superb spring show of daffodils, hellebores, spring bulbs and blossoms.

We are open several times throughout the seasons from the first snowdrops to the last late-autumn colour and for extended periods from Feb–April including a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt for children every year. Our fully licensed Potting Shed Tearooms serve delicious home-made hot food, teas, coffee and cakes and are open the same days as the gardens.

Opening Times

The gardens are open, while the house is unfortunately not open.

Opening Dates vary each year, 10am-4pm.

Dates and times are on our website www.chippenhamparkgardens.info.
