A great garden to visit

Whether you’re looking for a garden with peace and quiet, or fun and action you will find a great day out here at Trentham Gardens.

The Gardens

The new-look gardens have matured into some of the finest in Britain, declared, by James Alexander Sinclair in The Telegraph, as “The garden makeover of the decade”.

The contemporary revival of the famous Italian Gardens was led by renowned designer and multi-Chelsea gold-medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith. To the east of the Italian Gardens are the Rivers of Grass and the adjacent Floral Labyrinth. Both these schemes were designed by eminent Dutch plantsman, and Chelsea gold-medal winner, Piet Oudolf.

We are an award-winning garden which in 2013 won the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Gold Award, in 2015, 2016 and 2017 we were awarded a Gold Accolade by Visit England.

At the centre of Trentham Gardens is the mile long, Capability Brown designed, Trentham Lake. Take the circular lakeside walk all the way round as it takes you aside the River Trent, by the bird hide, through the cascading weir and along atmospheric trails, featuring vast meadow schemes by Nigel Dunnett and the team who were responsible for the stunning wildflower plantings at the Olympic Park. These were chosen for seasonal interest and environmental suitability.

Glorious Gardens

There’s plenty for the whole family at Trentham with an exciting adventure playground where children can tackle the assault course, fly down the zip wire, get creative in the sand pits, climb the nets, test their driving skills or get lost in the hide and speak maze. Check out our toddler zone, with a natural and nautical theme, including boats that sail on a sea of sand!
