Visit to Spetchley Park Gardens Spetchley, Worcester. WR5 1RS

This is an especially arranged group visit (They do not usually allow group visits on a Saturday). We have had to pay a deposit to guarantee the booking. The fee, £8, is for entrance only, if you have a garden membership please bring your card(s) with you for free entry. Refreshments will be available from their Granary cafe.

“Spetchley Park Gardens
Spetchley has been home to the Berkeley family for over 400 years and successive generations have lovingly collected rare plants, shrubs and trees from around the world, creating a wondrous garden of many rooms and vistas that appeal to all ages and tastes.

Surrounded by ancient parkland and lakes, this historic garden is set in the wonderful Worcestershire countryside with far reaching views to the Malvern Hills.

There is also a wonderful coffee shop the Granary, where you can buy a takeaway picnic lunch or cakes or snacks. We hope you enjoy your visit to Spetchley Park Gardens.”

“From the West
Take the A4440/A44 out of Worcester towards Stratford-Upon-Avon. Shortly after crossing over the M5, you will pass under a white footbridge and the entrance to the Gardens is on the right.”

Please ensure your form is returned by 14 days before the visit date.
