Overview

Worcestershire's best kept secret, Spetchley Park Gardens is an ever changing garden which has been owned and tended to by the Berkeley family for over four hundred years.

Successive generations have lovingly collected rare plants, shrubs and trees from around the world and boasts one of the largest private collections of plant varieties outside the major botanical gardens.

Enjoy wonderful walks through sweeping lawns, woodland glades and beautiful borders. Visit our newest attraction, our Heritage Centre, which displays the history of Spetchley and the restored Sovereign Coach. Relax in our Old Laundry Tea Rooms with a light lunch or freshly made slice of cake.

Families can enjoy trails and events throughout the year in the Gardens, please see our website for more details.

We hope you enjoy your visit to the Gardens.

Things to See

Fun Facts

Spetchley Park Manor was originally a moated Tudor house. The building was burned to the ground by disgruntled Scottish Presbyterian Royalists at the Battle of Worcester to prevent Oliver Cromwell from using the house as his headquarters.

The modern Georgian mansion was designed by John Tasker and built in 1811.
