Waterperry Gardens

Just a stone’s throw from Oxford and within easy reach of London nestles Waterperry Gardens.

Made famous by Beatrix Havergal who established her School of Horticulture for Ladies here from 1932 to 1971, it’s now home to 20 acres of beautifully landscaped ornamental gardens, a quality plant centre and garden shop, gallery and gift shop, museum and tea shop.

We are open all year round (except between Christmas and New Year’s Day), 10am to 5.30pm between April 1st and October 31st and 10am to 5pm in the winter. There is a charge to look around the gardens, but access to the rest of the estate is free.
Please note dogs are allowed on a short lead around the estate and garden centre but are NOT allowed within the paid entrance ornamental gardens. For more information about Waterperry and prices for visiting the gardens, please click here.
