The Abbots Ripton Hall Garden Show takes place every two years when Lord & Lady De Ramsey very kindly open their stunning private gardens for this very special event. 


The Hall gardens cover an area of 8.5 acres (3.4 hectares) with managed parkland and a 10 acre (4 hectare) lake. All areas are open to the public during the garden show. The gardens comprise of many fine ancient trees, extensive lawns, shrub rose borders, herbaceous borders, a grey border, bog garden and mixed borders. There are many follies designed by Peter Foster around the garden including a gothic trellis in the herbaceous border and the constable pavilion at the end of the lake.


Besides viewing and enjoying the gardens at your leisure, the programme includes the inspiring show gardens – this year’s theme is ‘outdoor living’ – check HERE for details. There’ll be talks and demonstrations by professional gardeners, a Saturday Gala Evening with Dixieland Jazz and hog roast, a locally-sourced food fayre, the popular children’s container competition,  silent auction, plant sales,  classic and vintage car displays and many other family activities.
