Nestled away a twenty minute walk down the river - these gardens are very quaint and beautiful. A wonderful place to watch the sunrise and sunset over Durham with a leafy dramatic view - and behind the gardens there’s a cute farm with alpacas.
The gardens themselves aren’t open at predictable times, but that does not detract from the beauty of this place! You can easily peek through the gates and look at the enclosed gardens or wander through the rosebushes at the bottom of the stairs. Great for picnics.

The garden is beautifully maintained. I visited on a sunny weekend. The lower area, outside of the walled garden, was busy with groups picnicking. It's a lovely place for a picnic. It's a good stroll along the riverbank from Durham city centre.

What a beautiful find. Fruit trees coming in to blossom. Daffodils and wild flowers. Benches to sit and admire the calm tranquillity. A glimpse into a walled garden and a visit to a neighbouring farm to talk to alpacas. Lovely place.
