Welcome to the Bressingham Gardens

Welcome to the Bressingham Gardens. A paradise for gardeners with two beautiful six acre gardens, created by Alan and Adrian Bloom over many years where new features are still being developed and planned.

The Plants

Visit Us:

For Garden Lovers

The Bressingham Gardens is a mecca for serious gardeners with 17 acres of intensely planted gardens containing over (at last count) over 8000 species and cultivars of perennials, grasses, shrubs, trees, conifers, ferns and bulbs.

For the average or would be gardener

The gardens are expansive, colourful throughout the “open” season, which runs from April 1st to the end of October. They are a place to enjoy, dawdle and pick up a few ideas for your own garden. The 17 acre Bressingham Gardens are unique in many ways, the very different gardens created by founder Alan Bloom and his son Adrian from 1953 to the present day. Alan’s other interest became the charitable trust, Bressingham Steam Museum, so on site both Gardens and Museum are open together, offering a considerable choice for visitors.

Garden group visitors

Jaime Blake guiding a group of garden press visitors around the gardens on a summers day. There are limited number of guides available who must be booked well ahead.

We welcome garden group of all sizes from all over the world. These can be as simple as just booking your group or party for an open day of your choice, or guides can mostly be provided if reserved at the time of booking.

For speciality bookings please email to info@bressingham.co.uk or phone 01379688292


We welcome Garden and Horticultural Societies

Each year we have many visits from groups of horticultural societies and garden clubs. Below is an excerpt from a letter sent to us by Alvar Johnson of the Groby Gardening Society following their visit in July:

However, the jewels in your crown must be the gardens. It was unanimously agreed that these were THE best we have visited. Over the years we have been to stately homes, National Trust properties and the flagship gardens of the RHS, but none compare with yours. The weather helped and many thanks for laying on the wall to wall sunshine we enjoyed!”

Why not consider a visit to the Bressingham Gardens with your group in 2014?
