Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a spring walk through our gardens, highlighting the Coronation Garden.
Created by Sir Giles Loder 70 years ago to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Coronation Garden is the perfect place to take a moment and reflect on the Queen’s long reign and to experience the height of spring in our woodland gardens.
A lovely detour on the Spring Walk for Rhododendron enthusiasts that will take you to the Coronation Garden, a garden developed to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation.
The Coronation Garden at the top end on our Spring Walk sits between the newly reopened Top Garden and Mossy Ghyll Pond.
Sir Giles Loder was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour and planted all forms of Rhododendron Loderi in the Coronation Garden to mirror our famous Loderi Garden on the opposite side of the valley along with other spring flowering plants that our gardens are famed for.
Please note that this route is not accessible for visitors with limited mobility.
