Nature has sprung back into life and Manchester is blooming! We’re celebrating by offering members and their guests a private tour of RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford.

RHS Bridgewater officially opened in May 2021, after 6 years of planning. The site was originally developed in 1840 when Worsley New Hall was created, along with magnificent formal gardens, and is 154 acres in size.

Once visited by Queen Victoria and King Edward VII, the Hall survived a fire and two World Wars before it was demolished in the 1940s, with the gardens succumbing to Nature. Today the RHS master plan for Bridgewater is to embrace the site’s heritage while also giving it a future.

The tour – which will inspire gardeners and non-gardeners alike – lasts 1 hour, after which you can visit one of their three cafes, which serve a huge variety of tasty food (cost not included).

The ticket price of £13.50 includes admission to the site (usually £12.35) and the tour.

There is a separate ticket type for existing RHS members (who do not need to pay admission).

Booking is open to Lit and Phil members and their guests and this event should make for a wonderful afternoon in the great outdoors.

Good to know: You will need to make your own way there. Visit their website for more information on visiting the site.
