The highly anticipated RHS Bridgewater is now open to the public. The largest current garden project in Europe, this once in a generation opening sees the Royal Horticultural Society take inspiration from the heritage of the site and transform it into a world-class garden. RHS Bridgewater was once home to Worsley New Hall, a Victorian Mansion surrounded by formal gardens and Woodlands. The Hall became a Red Cross Hospital during the First World war , and then sadly fell into decline. The RHS took over in 2017 and the transformation is underway to create a world-class garden and a local community champion. We also visit hidden Salford gem, Ordsall Hall, for a guided tour and refreshments.

Travel to your hotel

 

Monday

RHS Bridgewater and return home

This morning we enjoy a full English breakfast before heading to the highly anticipated RHS Bridgewater where we explore the Tom Stuart-Smith created garden, and Harris Bug Studio Kitchen garden. We will wander through woodlands and take in the views of the historic lake. Cross the bridge in the Chinese stream-side garden and explore the Weston Walled Garden.

Tuesday

Ordsall Hall and travel home

On your way home, you will visit Ordsall Hall. The hall has a long and interesting history with many different uses since it was first mentioned in records in 1177! You may also meet a spooky inhabitant or two!

There is so much to do and discover! Dress up as a Tudor, try on some chainmail, discover some of the foods that would have been cooked at the Hall in the 1500s, pretend you are having a feast around the table in the Great Hall, find out about the Pre-Raphaelite artist who lived there, listen to the story of the 450 year old Radclyffe bed, visit the allotment and herb garden, explore the sculptures in the gardens and much, much more.

Pick up a souvenir of your visit in the shop and treat yourself to some well deserved cake and coffee after you have toured the Hall.
