Garden Nature / Park
Make the information center your first stop at RHS Garden Hyde Hall and grab an “I-spy” spotter sheet and follow themed trails around the garden. Indoor and outdoor activities, such as the preschool gardening and craft club, will entertain kids, and conditions are usually ideal for kite flying. Get hands-on with bulb and seed planting, scavenger hunts, and wild honey and apple tasting. Bring your own snacks to enjoy in the picnic area or garden, choose from a variety of cooked meals at the restaurant, or on warmer days enjoy the sheltered tea garden.

  • Beware! I feel i have been treated unfairly. They automatically renewed my membership. I was not informed of this when I joined neither did I receive a warning or new in date membership cards. Also, they charge £20 more than the original years fee!! I have not used the park. I emailed them explaining this and they stated they will not refund the £81 which they have taken unfairly!! Disgraceful!
  • Very nice gardens which are well maintained and of a reasonable size. The attached garden centre is quite overpriced but the main point of attending is the gardens. Price is a little on the steep side but not excessive.
  • Their winter woodland walk was so informative. A great introduction to this beautiful place.
  • Just a great place to go. We enjoy the dry garden. Great ideas for planting at our home in Portugal. Nice cafe too. Good food at reasonable prices. Try Beth Chatto's place near Colchester too.
  • my friend and I went to Hyde Hall today 4/12/16 for the sparkle fair. How disappointing. We paid £10 each to enter We saw 2 marquees, one for children to take part in arty things, the other selling expensive gifts.. No sign of sparkle or Christmas joy. We walked around the gardens in the cold which were set for winter, obviously. We felt it was an expensive afternoon for not a lot.
