About Helmingham Hall

It is hard to exaggerate the effect this beautiful park, with its red deer, spectacular moated Hall in mellow patterned red brick with its famous gardens will have on the visitor.

The whole combines to give an extraordinary impression of beauty and tranquillity. A classic parterre flanked by hybrid musk roses lies before a stunning walled kitchen garden with exquisite herbaceous borders and beds of vegetables interspersed by tunnels of sweet peas, runner beans and gourds.

On the other side lies a herd and knot garden behind which is a rose garden of unsurpassable beauty.

The colour combinations in all these are in immaculate taste and are both subtle and very beautiful.

The influence of the well-known garden designer Xa Tollemache, is clearly visible - the parterre was redesigned in 1987 and the new rose garden to east of the coach house was created in 1982, together with the knot and herb garden.

The Tollemache family, enjoy sharing their passion for the beautiful gardens and open them throughout the summer

Opening Times - May to September

A visit to the gardens makes a perfect day out for everyone. There is a relaxed atmosphere for visitors to enjoy the serenity and tranquillity of the gardens, to lose themselves in the plethora of colour, scents and history. It is recommended to allow 2 hours to visit the gardens however most people stay much longer taking the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch or a cream tea in The Coach House and to visit the gift shops, produce and plant stall.
