11th August – A Garden through Time – Special Tour

Posted on 10th Jul 2024 | Jane

11:30 am & 1:45pm

Join us for a brand new tour to discover secrets of the fascinating history and development of the garden at Hoghton Tower. In addition to hearing about the three distinct gardens, the tour will include a unique chance to visit a section of the Long Walk which is otherwise not accessible to the public.

This guided tour will last approximately 1 hour. Please dress appropriately for the weather as the tour will go ahead unless it is unsafe to do so. The terrain is mixed, so it is essential that you wear stout, waterproof footwear. Please remain with your guide at all times.

This tour is recommended for over 16s only.


Access to the gardens is via an uneven inclined driveway. Paths within the publicly accessible gardens are level and gravelled, however, the path on the Long Walk (private unless on this guided tour) is not surfaced and may be muddy. There is one flight of eight stone steps in one of the gardens. If you have any questions about accessibility on this tour, please email
