    Home of Sir Nicholas & Lady Susan Bacon, Raveningham Gardens, like many other great gardens, began with the work of one person - the current owner’s late mother Priscilla Bacon. Since then much love and imagination has gone in to creating the ever changing, living garden. A place of peace and quietness, where one can reflect on how a modern garden can evolve yet still maintain traditions.

    The Gardens are a mix of the formal and informal, set in a glorious parkland setting with many trees of great age. From the superb Victorian working walled kitchen garden and restored Victorian conservatory, featuring figs, vines & growing plants, to the modern Stumpery created with upturned stumps of uprooted trees, showcasing varieties of tree ferns. Enjoy Edwardian rose gardens and colourful herb beds, huge herbaceous borders and contemporary garden sculptures, many by Lady Bacon who also devised our Time Garden, designed around Sir Francis Bacon's essay ‘Of Gardens’. Or take a relaxing lakeside walk and view our Millennium Lake. We are famous for our specialist snowdrops and agapanthus.

    We are an RHS Partnership garden and hold fundraising days for The Priscilla Bacon Lodge. Open for individual visits, or Group Tours.
