RHS Bridgewate­r

-

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.
