Our excursion today takes us to Biddulph Grange Gardens (National Trust).
This amazing Victorian garden was created by James Bateman for his collection of plants from around the world. A visit takes you on a global journey from Italy to the pyramids of Egypt, a Victorian vision of China and a re-creation of a Himalayan glen.
The garden features collections of rhododendrons, summer bedding displays, a stunning Dahlia Walk in the late summer, and the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, bought from China in the 1850's.
Entrance to the garden is free for National Trust Members, for non-members a fee of approximately £9.50 per person will be payable on arrival.
