Find out about visiting the spectacular Grade 1 Listed Gardens, the Tollemache family and their 500 year history with Helmingham.
A relaxing tour of the gardens makes for a perfect day out for everyone.
It is hard to exaggerate the effect this beautiful park, with its red deer, spectacular moated Hall in mellow patterned red brick with its famous gardens will have on the visitor. The whole combines to give an extraordinary impression of beauty and tranquillity. A classic parterre flanked by hybrid musk roses lies before a stunning walled kitchen garden with exquisite herbaceous borders and beds of vegetables interspersed by tunnels of sweet peas, runner beans and gourds. On the other side lies a herb and knot garden behind which is a rose garden of unsurpassable beauty.
The colour combinations in all these are in immaculate taste and are both subtle and very beautiful.
The influence of the well-known garden designer Xa Tollemache, is clearly visible – the parterre was redesigned in 1987 and the new rose garden to east of the coach house was created in 1982, together with the knot and herb garden.
