PARKING

Visiting the physic garden by bus, train or car visitors will be prepared for a short 200 footsteps walk to the entrance gate. This is a very pleasant walk along a riverside lane which is also a public footpath and slopes up to the Physic Garden at the garden end.

PLEASE PARK IN OUR TOP-UP CAR PARK IF YOU ARE COMING TO A WORKSHOP OR EVENT:

We’re working on it, but currently our visitor car park is small –  if you are coming to a workshop or event please kindly park in our Top-up car park (shared with Dilston Scout Camp). Please allow a 5-10min relaxed walk from this car park to the entrance gate.

Directions for Dilston Top-up Car Park : 

  • Dilston Scout Camp car park is a grass-field car park situated  200yds towards Hexham from the Physic Garden car park.  You will find it just off on the A695 – the turning is at the top of the hill. Turn directly left into the field just after turning onto lane; please do not drive down the scout camp lane, which is private.
  • Walk 500yds down the lane, turn left onto the public footpath at the cottage & after 250yds (or 5-10 minutes) you’ll come to the Physic Garden entrance gate on the left.
