About the Bishop’s House Garden

The Bishop of Norwich's Garden

The historic, 900-year-old gardens are part of the private residence of the Bishop of Norwich, Graham Usher, who has strong ecological interests as the lead Bishop of the Environment in the Church of England.

The organically run garden, which is more than 4 acres in size, features long herbaceous borders, woodland and jungle walks, a large perennial wildflower labyrinth and fruit orchard.

The blossoms in the orchard are amongst some of the many flowers foraged by the Bishop’s bees. The extensive shrubberies contain many rare and unusual plants, among these being a Hebe planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet in 1840.

There is also a kitchen garden, a bamboo walk and a popular plant sales area all within the 600 year old flint boundary walls.
