A couple of weeks ago, I spent a lovely afternoon at the Plantation Garden Norwich. It’s a little bit like a secret garden as its a bit tucked away but actually situated in the centre of the city. Although it’s fairly small, it’s got bags of character and is laid out on many levels. You can find out more about its history and the work that has been done to restore it on their website here: http://plantationgarden.co.uk/
It’s a lovely peaceful spot and I spent a few hours with a few other photography enthusiasts wandering around it taking photographs of the gardens and the flowers in it. It’s a very reasonable entrance price too – just a couple of quid. At certain times it is also possible to get tea & cakes there and there’s a whole long list of summer events: find out more about that on their website too!
I’d certainly recommend a visit. A gallery of photos follows. If you would like to see a full screen slideshow, just click on one of the images.
The Plantation Garden is located at the city end of the Earlham Road – it’s about a 15 minute walk from Wedgewood House. Please note that there are no parking facilities at the gardens.
