Join Boundless for the day and be some of the first people to see the largest gardening project in Europe. RHS Garden Bridgewater is the latest in the RHS collection and one of biggest walled gardens in the UK.

Named after the historic Bridgewater Canal which runs along the southern end of the site, RHS Garden Bridgewater is situated on the former estate of the First Earl of Ellesmere, who built Worsley New Hall in the early 1840’s. This once in a generation project will see the Royal Horticultural Society take inspiration from the heritage of the site and transform it into a world-class garden, designed by award winning landscapers.

The new gardens opened in 2021, and boasts an 11 acre Walled Garden, one of the largest in the UK, a 4-acre historic lake and management of an extensive 70 acre woodland. Landscape architect, Tom Stuart-Smith created the masterplan and alongside the fantastic Bridgewater team and award-winning garden designers, have brought ‘gardens within a garden’ to life by blending history with world-class horticulture.

In addition to the beautiful garden displays, orchards, meadows and woodland the venue houses a visitor centre, cafes, plant centre and shop in the striking Welcome Building, overlooking a new 1.4 acre lake.
