Dorothy Clive Garden Staffordshire

The Garden

The Dorothy Clive Garden, near Market Drayton, provides a special experience for all ages.  It was created 60 years ago by Colonel Clive for his wife Dorothy to enjoy during a life-limiting illness.

The Garden has developed greatly since those early days and is now considered to be one of the best ten woodland gardens in Britain.  Still best known for its collections of rhododendrons and azaleas, it has been enhanced in recent years by the addition of spring and summer borders, a winter garden and a Mediterranean Glasshouse.

The Dorothy Clive Garden is a charity dependant on visitors, volunteers and donations.  The aim is to give equal pleasure to visitors whether regular or occasional.  It is a place of beauty and peace where we aim to inform and to inspire.

The Silent Space

The whole garden will be part of the Silent Space project each Sunday morning from 10 -12 noon, except for days when we have special events.  Please check the website for details of these.
