A view of the Cross Garden at Rockingham Castle


The gardens at Rockingham extend to about 18 acres & fall into two distinct garden types. The formal gardens surround the Castle and include the Cross Garden, Rose Garden & the remarkable "elephant" yew hedge which dissects the formal garden & is reputedly 400 years old. The second part of the garden is the Wild Garden which extends across the valley to the east of the Castle & is home to a fascinating collection of plants & trees. Head Gardener, Richard Stribley guides informative tours during which questions are positively encouraged.  For more details see : http://www.rockinghamcastle.com/62/Tour_options_around_the_Castle_and_Gardens/
