    Special Event


To commemorate all those who lost their lives in conflicts for us, and to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, all armed forces personnel (both serving and retired) plus a family guest have free garden admission today (simply bring current ID or proof of status such as a Tri-forces Veterans badge). 

Armed forces personnel and their families are welcomed with a special display of 100 ceramic poppies randomly dispersed in a wildflower meadow and as seen on BBC Spotlight. Created by Winter Sculpture artist Renée Kilburn Ceramics, the poppies are for sale at £28 each of which £3.50 will be donated to Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Standing among the poppies is a magnificent sculpture of an 'Unknown Soldier' representing the last man standing. The sculpture created by another one of Rosemoor's Winter Sculpture Exhibition artists George Hider (an army veteran himself) is constructed from recycled scrap metal.

In addition, visitors can enjoy the garden in its amazing autumn colours.
