Europe's largest gardening project springs into life this May with RHS's latest green oasis attraction. RHS Garden Bridgewater is a new spectacular 154-acre garden, offering a tranquil escape in the transformed historic grounds of Worsley New Hall, Salford. This beautiful green space is set to join the prestigious RHS's portfolio as its fifth garden and the first new addition in 17 years. This will be the largest gardening project in Europe and will include a kitchen garden, heritage orchard, therapeutic garden and a historic 11-acre walled garden – one of the largest in the UK for visitors to enjoy all year-round. Though the Worsley
New Hall mansion no longer remains, echoes of the original gardens, ice-house, lake and formal terraces, can still be seen. Other highlights include The Paradise
Garden - a spectacular blend of Mediterranean and Asiatic planting inspired by the earliest gardens, Middle Wood, 30-acres of forest glades, pools and ponds and The Chinese Streamside Garden, a unique, Chineseinspired garden representing an exciting and unique fusion of Chinese and British horticulture.
