An opportunity to visit Horatio’s Garden Wales 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 Wales was designed by award-winning, three-time RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winner Sarah Price, renowned for her artistic, naturalistic planting style in such projects as the Olympic Park and a garden at Manchester’s Whitworth Gallery.

Horatio’s Garden Wales features scented, meadow, vegetable and flower gardens which encourage all-year round interest and biodiversity, inspired by the traditional Welsh landscape. It has a gently undulating landscape of diaphanous planting and clear-stemmed shrubs and trees, with sea view glimpses. A garden pavilion offers warmth, shelter and socialising, green oak seating for intimate places of repose and a greenhouse for growing and garden therapy. Star plants include the tactile paperbark maple and Seven-sons trees, fragrant planting including Daphne and box leaf Azara and elegant Japanese quince, toad lily and Chinese silver grass.

Find out more about Horatio’s Garden Wales here.

Led by the Head Gardener Owen Griffiths, 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 and Horatio’s Garden merchandise 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.

In case of rain and adverse conditions; suitable clothing should be worn.

All profits from tickets purchased will go directly to the charity, to enable Horatio’s Garden to continue to nurture lives after spinal injury.

Numbers are limited and a ticket must be purchased for everyone in your party. Horatio’s Garden reserves the right to cancel your tour. In this unlikely event, we will contact you directly to give you the option of an alternative tour date or full refund.

It’s a little snippet of heaven that makes visits more like a family gathering rather than a hospital visit.

Information on directions, parking and other frequently asked questions are included in our FAQ information sheet available here.
