Our beautiful gardens have been open to all as a public garden since 1946.  They are popular for dog walking, picnics or just admiring the flowers. Access is free and available any time, with pedestrian entrances off Vaughan Avenue and Insole Gardens in addition to the main entrance off Fairwater Road.

House and history

The house is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment and will be opening later in 2017 with a range of activities including exhibitions and guided tours as well as hosting special events. For a preview of what to expect, why not visit our Visitor Centre.

Car Parking and access

There is a free car park available, which includes three designated disabled parking bays.

Getting here

Directions, parking and transport information can be found here.


Details of how to arrange a tour for groups looking to come and explore the Court will be available when the house opens in early 2017.


There are three designated disabled parking bays located within the car park and the site is largely flat with paved routes throughout. If you have any questions about your visit, please get in touch.
