Not a garden but how could we ignore the national fruit collection? Whether you want a cider orchard or a gooseberry bush, this is the place to go, with 3,500 varieties to see. Brogdale also runs a series of festivals - soft-fruit day, cherry day and so on - throughout the season. There are regular guided tours throughout the day.
