Events Description

Welcome to Chillingham Castle Red Cross Open Garden Day

This rare survival from 1828 is the work of Royal garden designer, Sir Jeffrey Wyatville: fresh from his royal triumphs at Windsor. The urns and statues are inexpensive modern composite copies, but give an atmosphere of originality. The famous herbaceous border is the longest in Northern England. The far wall, fifteen feet thick, was a jousting ‘grandstand’ in ancient days, and it once extended around the castle grounds.
