Wentworth Castle Gardens

About Us

In 2007 Wentworth Castle Gardens, the only Grade 1 Listed Garden in South Yorkshire opened fully for the first time. Now you can be one of the first to explore one of the most historic gardens in the North of England, which is being carefully restored to its former glory.

The 500 acre estate is hidden away in rolling green hills near Barnsley and captivated the nation on the BBC TV 'Restoration' programme back in 2003.

Rare formal gardens have been rediscovered, National Collections of Rhododendrons, Camellias and Magnolias enhanced, and over 100,000 bulbs planted to create a carpet of colour. Many of the 26 listed buildings and monuments across the estate have been repaired and are now open for visitors to explore.

The gardens offer atmospheric views, woodland walks and majestic follies, including a dramatic viewing platform at the top of Stainborough Castle; a gothic folly situated 600 feet above sea level.

The gardens are open daily, April-Sept: 10am-5pm and Oct-Mar: 10am-4pm. An exciting events programme will also run throughout the year, contact 01226 776040 or www.wentworthcastle.org for further details.
