which bloom with
striking perennials.
At Biddulph Grange

140 Barbary macaques in the 60 acre
Trentham Monkey Forest where there

fascinating AngloSaxon Kingdom of
Mercia exhibition at

of everyday AngloSaxon life and death.
As well as 200 pieces of the Hoard the

items they buried with their dead to
provide for them in the afterlife. Guided
tours and Hoard by torchlight tours are
available for groups.

the cards can be requested up to seven days
before the date of visit.

The Trentham Estate – Trentham Gardens
27
Stoke-on-Trent has some fantastic
garden attractions, including the most
exciting day out in the country at the
Trentham Estate. There is something
for everyone – formal gardens and
fountains, wild and colourful prairies,
show gardens, woodland and lakeside
walks, art and sculpture trails and
Britain’s first 2 mile Barefoot walk,
great for your feet, health and general
well being.
Discover the world at Biddulph Grange Garden. This unique
Victorian garden consists of smaller hidden interlinking gardens
including an Italian terrace, Chinese garden, Egyptian pyramid,
dahlia walk, and a Scottish glen. Energetic displays of
rhododendrons and azalea’s burst into life in late spring. Rode
Hall also has sensational seasonal displays with its snowdrop
walks in February, and stunning rhododendrons and azaleas in
May. The City is also home to Ford Green Hall, a 17th century
manor house with richly furnished rooms and a herb garden.
With parkland originally designed by Capability Brown and
gardens laid out by Sir Charles Barry, this former estate of
the Dukes of Sutherland, became a playground of the people
in the early 20th century. The contemporary revival of the
Italian Gardens was led by renowned designer Tom StuartSmith, who along with the Trentham team revitalised the
10-acre Victorian garden ten years ago. Piet Oudolf’s Rivers of
Grass and Floral Labyrinth schemes add further contemporary
inspiration to garden visitors.
