I do hope you have enjoyed visiting the Garden this year.  Many of you have helped in so many ways through your financial contributions and  volunteering.

We only have one open day before Christmas is upon us,  the Autumn Colour Day on Sunday 27th October 11.30 – 4.00 p.m.  With this in mind we have some very pretty Christmas Cards which you might like to buy.  A pack of eight cards contain four photos of the Garden and cost £5.50. They are blank inside so you can write your own message.

Do visit us if you can to enjoy the Garden which is still looking quite beautiful and make sure you pop into the shop.  A few cards are also available at The Gibberd Gallery.

Good wishes,

Ann – Volunteer

REVIEWS


  • I’ve visited the Gibberd Garden many times and every time it makes me feel like a kid. Much of its planting is green, which sets a tranquil scene. It is cleverly laid out: divided up into rooms, most of them home to interesting pieces of sculpture that increase the sense of exploration and discovery as you move through.

    THE GUARDIAN: THE 10 BEST GARDENS TO VISIT THIS SUMMER
  • The Gibberd Garden is a national treasure.

    DAILY EXPRESS
  • Architect Sir Frederick Gibberd's ambitious sculpture garden ought not to be missed, especially as it is at a peak with excellent horticulture complementing the 90 or so sculptures and episodes that adorn this site. Well worth going out of your way for.

    TIM RICHARDSON
    DAILY TELEGRAPH: TEN WELL-KEPT SECRETS TO VISIT
  • It is a wonderful garden ... an inspiration to the present generation of young gardeners.

    THE TIMES
  • Gibberd's Garden has all the sureness of a latter-day Brown or Repton's work. Everyone who visits is bewitched by its serene but entertaining beauty.

    SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
  • You know how much thought must have gone into it, yet it looks utterly uncontrived: true wizardry.
