Biddulph Grange Garden

The Biddulph Grange Garden, located in Biddulph, Staffordshire, England, is a Victorian garden created by James Bateman in the 1840s. Bateman was an avid collector of plants from around the world. He built the gardens to feature his impressive collection. Visitors will take a global journey from Italy, to Egypt, to Scotland, to China.
In addition to the international gardens, there are beautiful rose gardens, a topiary garden with rocks and tunnels that children absolutely love, a cherry orchard, and gardens with rhododendrons and azaleas which are simply spectacular in the spring.
The gardens are open daily from 11:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Admission for adults is 7.35 Britsih pounds. Admission for chldren is 3.70 British pounds.

  1. It's absolutely amazing how gardens can be so versatile. I truly enjoy mixing up the different types of foliage and sizes of plants in my garden. It's nice to see the contrast between formal and informal gardens too.
