An opportunity to visit Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland for a private tour. Every Horatio’s Garden is created by a leading designer and rarely open to the public. This tour offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the restorative garden and learn more about its key design features and style, the benefits of horticultural therapy and the impact of gardens on wellbeing.

Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland was designed by Andy Sturgeon, an acclaimed garden designer who has won a total of nine RHS Gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. His modern designs are a fusion of traditional materials and contemporary styling, that have come to be known for their timeless, architectural qualities, innovative planting and sculptural characteristics.

Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland is the first Horatio’s Garden to feature a dedicated boccia court in a social area with parasols and sensory planting. It includes a beautiful water feature for tranquillity and a warm garden room with timber cladding. Garden pods will provide shelter, privacy and socialising spaces with a large greenhouse for garden therapy and growing.

Led by the Head Gardener Matthew Lee, you will have time to talk and learn about the charity, discover the incredible variety of plants and the individual design elements of the garden and time to enjoy the uplifting and vibrant space around you.

Hot beverages and homemade cake will be available and there will be a selection of plants on sale, if you wish to have a memento of your visit.

You will be gifted a plant list specific to the garden and a beautiful enamel Horatio’s Garden pin badge, so you can continue to show your support long after your visit.

The tour will begin at 10am and lasts 1.5 hours. We would advise you to arrive in good time to allow time for parking if you are driving and making your way to the garden.

The garden, and in particular the garden room, has given me a reason to get out of bed. It is great escapism which brightens up my day, lifts my mood and gives me the feel-good factor. It gives me privacy, tranquillity, and a sense of revitalisation.
