Autumn Sundays in October at Hole Park Gardens in Kent 2021
11am to dusk
New Garden Tours at Hole Park Gardens this autumn
A special event on Saturday 9 October 2021 is now available to book and will include an autumn garden tour led by either the head gardener Quentin Stark or Hole Park’s owner Edward Barham.
The special garden tour will need to be booked in advance via the website https://www.holepark.com
/ where you can choose your time slot. Garden tours with admission will be £12 for adults. The tea room will also be open.
The tour will include the stunning exotic border which is full of vibrant colours in October including cannas and dahlias. The late flowering agapanthus ‘Hole Park Blue’ can also be seen in the formal gardens.
The magnificent mature trees and Japanese Maples provide striking autumn colour at this time of year around the 16 acre gardens and 10 acre woodland.
Visitors can enjoy a circular walk which takes walkers past a delightful carved wooden sculpture of a family of bears climbing a tree to reach a honey pot and also a renovated ‘Ice House’ which was built in around 1740 to store ice long before the days of refrigeration. When the ice was cut and stacked it would last for up to three years in this cool environment!
Open on Wednesday and Thursdays until the end of October visitors can also enjoy additional Sunday opening on 3rd, 10th , 17th & 24th and 31st October 2019. 11am to dusk.
Lunches, afternoon tea with homemade cakes will be available in the coach house tearoom where there is also a plant stall selling a varied selection of plants to take home. Jam, preserves, beer and apple juice from the Hole Park Estate are also available.
