Childerley Hall Open Garden – Easter Monday

Explore the historic gardens of Childerley Hall and enjoy teas in the Elizabethan Chapel this Easter Bank Holiday Monday (April 22nd 2019).

The gardens will open from 2.30pm to 5.30pm – a wonderful chance to enjoy the scenery with friends and family.  Free entry for children; adults £5 each.

All funds raised will go to support the running of Caldecote Church as a venue of worship and of weddings and other important occasions in the lives of those who live in the parish.

Dogs are very welcome – please keep them on a lead and clear up after them!

A route for wheelchair access will be available and signed from the entrance table.

    This looks really good so we will be visiting your beautiful gardens on Easter Monday. We just live in Hardwick so know exactly where to go. Thank you for advertising this special day.

    I’m not from your area so I was looking for an address but you don’t appear to have given it. I can see the directions but no actual address. Would have been nice to have it.
    Cheers

      Hi Stuart, many thanks for asking. In the past sat navs had trouble with the postcode so Childerley have been wary of publicising the postcode, but the technical address of Childerley is 1a Mill Yard, Cambridge CB23 8BA. It’s a private estate rather than a specific address, but Mill Yard should get you there. Once you near the garden and chapel there will be parking directions to an adjacent field.
