Description of Garden

There are two hundred acres of gardens and arboretum with a tree collection representing all the continents of the world. An easy walk from the Visitor Centre is the stunningly redesigned Walled Garden. The five individual gardens within seventeenth century walls combine the best of contemporary and traditional. The double long border is the longest in East Anglia and includes both long established shrubs and interesting new plantings.

History Of Garden

The site has been restored from dereliction in the 1970s. The Walled garden re-opened in 2003. Marks Hall also has one of the largest collections of Wollemi Pine groves in Europe.
