Biddulph Grange Garden
Explore the Beautiful Biddulph Grange Gardens
James Bateman's Victorian Biddulph Grange Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent was beautifully restored by the National Trust and the result is a day out that allows you to journey the world via its plants. The garden has a number of themed areas so you will find yourself wandering from the Chinese Temple to the Egyptian Court and onto the Pinetum, the Dahlia Walk and the Himalayan Glen. There are tunnels, passageways and undulating paths that weave through this lovely bucolic plot and lead you to some beautiful sights. Look out for the gorgeous rhododendrons in late spring, the summer collection of herbaceous plants in Mrs Bateman's garden and the sublime autumnal Dahlia Walk. Travel through time in the Geology Gallery where the Creation story has been recreated and study Bateman's reconciliation of geology and theology.
