Where do I park?
Parking is at Bosworth’s Garden Centre in the Walled Garden, Elton. There is ample room and provision for disabled parking. The entrance to the Hall and Garden is along a pleasant tree-lined walk of approximately 300 metres.

Lavatories & Disabled Lavatories
There are facilities at both Bosworth’s Garden Centre and at the Hall.

Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are not allowed in the Hall and Garden. Assistance dogs are allowed in the Garden.

The Garden is accessible for wheelchairs via gravel paths. The Hall is not suitable for wheelchairs, Zimmer frames or pushchairs. There are several flights of steps, which may be a problem for visitors with walking difficulties.  There is  very little visitor seating within the Hall.

For further information about access arrangements, please telephone the Events Office: 01832 280468 or email

How long is the tour of the Hall and Gardens?
Guided tours last approximately one hour and depart at regular intervals.   For those who prefer to visit at their own pace, we suggest our Bank Holiday open days when visits are “free-flow” with Room Attendants available to answer queries.

The route around the Garden is at your leisure and on average takes approximately forty-five minutes.

Can I bring a picnic?
Picnics are not permitted. Bosworth’s Garden Centre in the walled garden provides delicious lunches, teas and light refreshments by arrangement in advance. It is also possible to book lunch at either the Loch Fyne restaurant or The Black Horse
(see Places to Eat).

Can I take photos?
Photography is not permitted in the Hall. You are welcome to take photographs of the Garden for private use. If you wish to use photographs of the Hall or Garden for commercial purposes, please call 01832 280468 or email
