About the garden

Owned by
The Royal Horticultural Society

RHS Garden Bridgewater is the fifth RHS Garden. Set within the historic grounds of Worsley New Hall, this spectacular 154-acre garden blends the heritage of an old garden landscape with contemporary designs and world-class horticulture. The transformation of this beautiful green space will enrich the lives of local communities and their environment for the future. This is an exciting time at our newest garden. Everything is beginning to flourish, ready to grow through the seasons and years to come.

Highlights include the Worsley Welcome Garden, designed by Tom Stuart-Smith. Lose yourself in the maze-like planting, which showcases a blend of grasses, herbaceous perennials, lush lawns and beehive-shaped tree topiary. Bridgewater is also home to one of the largest walled gardens in Europe, which contains themed gardens within its boundary including the Paradise Garden, inspired by early Persian Gardens and a beautiful and productive Kitchen Garden.
