Formal Gardens at Waterperry

Details

Waterperry Gardens have been delighting visitors for years with 8 acres of historic and inspirational gardens nestled in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The gardens feature a spectacular 200 foot herbaceous border along with rose and formal gardens, a lily canal and riverside walk.

The Plant Centre and Garden Shop stock everything for the garden with many plants grown in the on-site nursery.
The Art-in-Action Gallery and Gift Barn house beautiful artworks by British artists alongside home, outdoor living and gift ideas.
Waterperry’s Rural Life Museum is packed with quirky ephemera and the Saxon Church within the grounds is complete with its original 13th century stained glass windows.

No visit is complete without stopping by at the Teashop serving hot and cold lunches, afternoon teas and some of the best cakes in the county!

New Children’s Play Area now open for 2016.

Waterperry Gardens are just 7 miles from Oxford city centre.
