OK, the gardens are not immaculately maintained. But they are free to enter, are full of interesting plants and have a range of facilities to visit - from a cafe to a garden shop. Well worth a visit.

Most people who visit Moreton go to the tea rooms which are good but often busy. Just 50 metres around the corner is an equally enjoyable place to go for food. If you have young children then win win with animals and play park.

A hidden gem with some unusual sculptures. Great to have found it and no cost to enter! Next door to T.E.Lawrence graveyard.

Love this little gem of a secret garden. Beautiful oasis. Worth a visit. Would recommend if you have an hour to spend. Delightful.

A beautiful garden employing young people with additional needs, offering them accredited training courses. Lovely tea rooms a bonus. Pretty much completely accessible to all. Free entry but worth a large donation for a great visit.

We were visiting the local church and Lawrence of Arabia’s burial place when we saw the Walled Garden. It was large and in places a bit overgrown. I especially enjoyed the rose garden which had lovely fragrant bushes. The tea room had lovely cakes and...More

Moreton walled gardens are beautiful! My family and I loved walking around exploring the different little gardens, looking at all the different sculptures and smelling the beautiful roses. We popped into the cafe for a cream tea which was divine! The scones were huge and...More

Fabulous meal for father's day. The home made chips and onion rings were fabulous. Excellent service too. Will definitely visit again.

Only if there has been a period of heavy rain and you choose to walk across the grassed areas; otherwise the pathways are suitable for walking shoes.
