Trentham Gardens, Trentham

Garden
A major restoration project gives Trentham Gardens the feeling of England's golden years. The Italianate garden's sculpted bushes, grasses, and flowers make angles along walking trails over an expansive patch of land. Take a walk through the gardens toward the woodlands, where over 140 Barbary macaques watch you from the trees. You won't find fences or pens keeping the monkeys away from the visitors, but wardens are on the watch to ensure your safety. Very little of Trentham Hall still stands, having been razed by its owner, the 4th Duke of Sutherland, in 1912 after the nearby town turned down his offer of the estate. However, on a ride in the Giant Observation Wheel, which gives you a bird's-eye view, you'll see the outline of the former hall. You'll also see the Trentham Ballroom where huge acts, including Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, took the stage in the 1970s.

  • Lovely place for all the family. Had a walk around the gardens and enjoyed a lovely cuppa in one of the little cafes on the estate. At one point the path goes close to the boundary fence with Trentham Monkey Forest so if you are lucky you'll even see a couple of monkeys jumping around too.
  • Great place to visit. Lots to do and see. Good place to take kids or grandparents, great for all ages
  • Wonderful day out for the family... Barefoot walk is great fun. Garden centre food is a little on the pricey side but very nice.
  • Great fun day out with the kids. Bare foot trail very interesting and the sculpture add a real interest. The park is great and the show gardens are fully inspired.
  • Kids love it here. Great day out and a lively place to have a wander.
