Biddulph Grange Garden

Posted on: November 27th, 2011 by Rob

One of Britain’s most exciting and unusual Victorian gardens, visitors to Biddulph are taken on a miniature tour of the world.

A walk round Biddulph involves passing through gardens inspired by China, Egypt and a Scottish glen. Other pleasures include a rhododendron garden and, since 2001, an ice-house.

Designed in the mid-19th century by James Bateman to display specimens from his extensive and wide-ranging plant collection, the garden is set out in a series of connected ‘compartments’.

Visitors are taken on a journey of discovery through tunnels and pathways to individual gardens inspired by countries around the world from the tranquillity of a Chinese garden or an Egyptian Court to a formal Italian garden.
