With a listed parterre, rose garden, kitchen garden and formal gravel walks, Thorpe Hall’s walled grounds are a delightful haven just a mile from Peterborough city centre. Now home to a Sue Ryder hospice, Thorpe Hall welcomes visitors to the gardens seven days a week. Refreshments are available in the Coffee Shop and all profits are donated to the charity.
The Silent Space
Thorpe Hall’s 17th century Grade I listed mansion house provides the perfect backdrop for its Silent Space. Visitors can soak up the sun in this south facing garden or enjoy quiet contemplation under the shade of its mature trees. Accessed from the main entrance, the garden’s lush lawn is flanked by pathways and flowerbeds. There’s a delightful folly for those who prefer a little more privacy.
