Discover summer romance in a secret city garden

Norwich, Norfolk

Plantation Garden is a tranquil three acre lush heritage green space in the centre of Norwich, but the challenge is to find it!

From dusk to dawn, Plantation Garden is a peaceful retreat where couples are encouraged to take picnics in which to grab valuable ‘us’ time.

Listed as a Grade II registered garden, it was originally created in 1856 by Henry Trevor in a chalk quarry, but was forgotten after his death. Rediscovered 25 years ago when it was virtually a total ruin, it is now one of Norwich's great treasures. 

Annual events around the gothic fountain, flower beds, lawns and Italianate terrace include outdoor cinema, vintage fairs and Sunday afternoon teas with the occasional musical interlude.   

A heavily wooded backdrop provides a natural habitat for wildlife whilst the ‘medieval’ terraced wall and steps leads up to a thatched viewing station.
