About the garden

Considered one of the finest gardens in East Anglia since the mid 17th century, the gardens at Somerleyton continue to delight.

Set in 12 acres, the garden is gradually being re-imagined as a series of interconnected 'rooms'. The gardens include magnificent trees, Victorian architecture and glasshouses, walled gardens, a rose garden, shrubberies planted with rare and unusual plants, exotica, a working kitchen and cut flower garden. Visitors will also enjoy exploring the Yew Hedge maze, which was planted in 1846.

Opening times

We open for four days over Easter from Friday 15th April 2022 for our Easter Egg Hunt (pre-book only). Then every Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday and Bank Holidays between 10am and 5pm (last entry 3.30pm) From 19th April until Sunday 30th October 2022.

Having been a few years ago, I felt it was a slight let down on this visit. Only the gardens were available. The cafe doesn't exist anymore. The food truck was basic and expensive. The gift shop was bare. The gardens were well maintained, but the edges of things were showing the bed fire better maintenance. The play park, hailed on the website can barely be called this. It's for some and a sandpit. Plus, the kids get a map with letters to find, and some are clearly no longer there, leading to several parents wandering the gardens confused with frustrated kids! All in all, disappointed compared to about five years ago.

I took my mum for her birthday in June, we found it to be a beautiful place to spend a few hours. Your enjoyment of the visit could possibly be down to your perspective and the timing of which flowers are in bloom. We timed it perfectly to see the particulary beautiful Peonies that grow in the kitchen garden and giant Allium. The Wisteria and some of the roses look and smell absolutely stunning. The whole place is a feast for your senses. Maybe it was slightly out of season as the coffee shop or Hall wasn't open and the gift shop had limited stock which was a shame. On the plus side they did have a little pop up box cafe which was fab. Here you can get a, cream tea, coffee or slice of cake and maybe a sandwich. There is a fair size Yew maze which was good fun, some absolutely amazing trees and the volunteers we spoke to were really pleasant. I definitely recommend a visit with company or you could quite comfortably go alone.

If this was dog friendly place, would've been perfect. Lots of different gardens, maze and orangeries to check out, also saw 2 black pigs in nearby field, some little birds in cages, a crow that attacked me and my shoelaces! Can't remember screaming so much in my life! Seemed like it was a local crow as was very chilled. Loved kitchen garden, so much different crop. Sadly my boyfriend and our dog had to stay out.

A-Maze-ing place! Very pretty place to spend a couple of hours. The snack bar does some lovely and unusual homemade cakes. The staff around the grounds are friendly and helpful, with lots of great advice for gardeners! I found out a lot about bamboo and will be growing some clumping varieties! And then there is the maze! Allow a bit of extra time, it's not as easy as you may think! Good value for the entry price.
