Whickham Hermitage Community Garden is an award-winning Victorian walled garden, providing an oasis in the heart of a bustling village.  It's been lovingly restored and renewed by dedicated volunteers and experts. Enjoy a walk around to appreciate the vast array of plants and visit the wildlife pond (the old mini boating lake).  See the beautiful Black East Indian ducks on the pond and the bantams and budgies will entertain you in their own special way!  Sam, the rabbit, just looks on quietly!

Garden sculptures have been created on-site by local artists and there's a children's playhouse for little visitors to enjoy! Look out for exciting new projects in development - including a butterfly greenhouse. 

This free-to-use garden has a beautiful, modern Orangery tearoom which offers very reasonably priced hot drinks, sandwiches, cake and more!  There's a great range of plants for sale.

Wheelchair accessible paths, cafe and toilet. Dog-friendly garden and a gazebo to shelter in when necessary.

Look out for Special Events with extended opening hours - including Halloween Pumpkin fun and visits by the Easter Bunny!
