Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Priorwood Garden – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

There are no toilets on site, but a public toilet is located just outside the garden.

Children are very welcome to play on the grass.

Dogs are very welcome in the garden – we ask that they are kept on a lead at all times.

For more information about planning your visit, please see the drop-down facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us, we can be contacted by telephone on 01896 209504.

Facilities & access

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Wander past herbaceous borders and herb gardens before ambling around the tranquil orchard and the woodland area, where shade-loving plants and hardy shrubs thrive.

Sniff out the scented blooms which are used to make pot pourri.

Look out for four wrought-iron inserts in the garden wall, beautifully decorated with mulberries and thought to be the work of either Robert Lorimer or Edwin Lutyens.
