Ditchingham Hall

There is a rare chance to visit one of the most beautiful private gardens in Norfolk on Sunday 14th April, when Lord and Lady Ferrers are opening up the grounds of Ditchingham Hall for one day only to raise money for the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind.

As well as the chance to walk around the gardens, there will be craft and plant stalls, and, of course, a tea terrace where visitors can enjoy a cup of tea and a homemade cake.

The Gardens at Ditchingham Hall include an old walled garden with coloured themed borders, a rose garden and a pergola; a woodland garden featuring one of the largest plane trees in the county, as well as several notable Cedars of Lebanon; a parterre designed by Hermione Shirley; and a newly-planted arboretum of rare and interesting trees which continues to be developed. 

The Ditchingham Gardens are only open on two days during the year, always in support of a local charity.

“We are extremely grateful to Lord and Lady Ferrers for opening up their private garden for visitors, and for supporting the work the NNAB does to support visually-impaired throughout Norfolk,” said Clive Evans of the NNAB.

“It’s a lovely opportunity to spend a Sunday afternoon exploring one of the county’s loveliest gardens, enjoying a cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake, and all for a great cause.”

The Gardens at Ditchingham are open on Sunday 14th April from 2pm-5pm.  Tickets cost £5 (children under 12 free), and will be available on the gate.  More details at https://www.nnab.org.uk/fundraising/fundraising-events/ditchingham-garden-open-day.
