Come and enjoy Spetchley, one of Britain's best kept secrets. Just three miles east of the cathedral city of Worcester and surrounded by glorious countryside, is the beautiful and historic garden of Spetchley Park.
Virtually hidden from the road, and largely unaltered in the last century, this lovely 30 acre Victorian paradise boasts an enviable collection of plant treasures from every corner of the globe including one of the finest and biggest private collections of peonies.
Clumps of wild primrose push up randomly through sapphire carpets of crocus and swathes of sunny daffodils in spring, with billowing borders of blowsy perennials and tender exotics in summer, and a palette of burnt orange, ochre and fiery red in autumn.
From the first tantalizing glimpse of the garden through the tall Corsican pines that so inspired Edward Elgar, to the magnificent borders that surround the walled garden and the magnolia-fringed Horse Pool, through the Melon Yard with its olives and delicious pineapple-scented flowers, Spetchley is full of surprises.
It's a garden of contrasts, where formal clipped hedges, rose beds and sweeping lawns meet tumbling herbaceous borders and walls festooned with rampant climbers, and where winding paths lead you from the quintessentially English to the unmistakably Mediterranean.
What better way to relax than in our excellent tea room where you can have a light lunch or afternoon tea and relax with a glass of wine. When refreshed why not collect a map from the Welcome Centre and follow the designated route around the 150 acre deer park filled with herds of red and fallow deer.
We hope you will find time to visit and enjoy these beautiful Gardens.
The Old Laundry Tea Room
Plant Sales and Gift Shop
Set within the old laundry for the Spetchley estate, the delightful Old Laundry Tea Room is run by Brookes Catering and is a very popular addition to the beautiful Gardens with both indoor and outdoor seating.
The Tea Room provides a wonderful location to rest and enjoy a delicious range of homemade produce within the Gardens. Serving light lunches, delicious cake, and afternoon tea using locally sourced produce why not just relax while watching our moorhen family busy about on the lawn.
Plant Sales & Gift Shop
The Gardens have a well-stocked Plants Sales area offering a wide selection of seasonal plants and shrubs; many of which are rarer plants that you may not find outside the major nurseries. Where possible we try to replicate the plants that can be seen in their glory within the Gardens.
Our gift shop is located within the Welcome Centre and is open during visitor hours. Browse a wide range of quality gifts and souvenirs and take home a reminder of your visit.
