Your Visit

Visitors can stroll through the gardens on the meandering shingle paths, to watch dragonflies flit on the pond, or sit on a secluded bench.  The 4-acre garden has year-round interest, structure, and colour so should be visited several times a year as each visit will differ with the change of seasons.

We have been hard at work making Denmans as safe as possible in compliance with government guidance and upon the advice of other organizations.

“I often see people going round the garden here at Denmans with their noses almost amongst the planting, and while I can understand their interest in individual plants, I long to say to them: ‘Now stand back and look at the associations and contrasts between individual masses and then see the plants individually up close, afterwards.'&#
