It’s about time we put a spring back in our step and took full advantage of what’s right on our doorstep, by paying a visit to the stunning RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford!
Almost two years to the day, the garden first opened to the public. The 154-acre garden is the biggest hands-on horticultural project undertaken in Europe since planning permission was first granted in 2017. Located on the grounds of where Worsley New Hall once stood, the garden already looks well established. From increasing biodiversity to managing water, sustainability and caring for the landscape are key to what the RHS do at the garden.
Come and join us for a private guided tour of the walled garden, led by one of the garden’s knowledgeable volunteers. Learn about how the garden was created and what’s involved on a daily basis.
We will visit on Sunday 21st May 2023 and meet at the Welcome Building at midday. Our private group tour is booked for 2-3pm, so you will be free to catch up with colleagues over a bite to eat in the café before the tour starts.
Please note dogs are not allowed in the garden, with the exception of registered support dogs. If you wish to visit with your children, please contact Kate Lo, NWTN Events Team Lead.
Cost: Garden admission is free for RHS members (you must notify the NWTN in advance of your valid membership details); admission for non-RHS members costs £10.35. In addition to the admission fee, all visitors must pay a supplement for the guided tour @ £5 per person. Please note there must be a minimum of 15 people for the group booking to go ahead.
There is a large free car park on site that includes three EV charging stations available with space to charge six vehicles. They are supplied by EV Charge Online. For Sat Nav users the postcode is M28 2LJ.
A shuttle bus service runs from Manchester Piccadilly/Salford Crescent/Walkden train stations priced @ £4 return per person – arriving at the garden at 12.05pm and departing at 4.20pm.
