VISITOR PARKING

Visitors to the physic garden will be prepared for a short (200 footstep) walk to the garden entrance gate. This is a very pleasant walk along a riverside lane, which is also a public footpath.

Please note:

  • Be prepared for a muddy lane when it’s wet!
  • Follow the lane by the river, after 100 steps the path turns to the right and inclines between 2 houses.
  • The physic garden entrance gate is on the right at the top of the incline.
