Southwell Minster Palace Gardens open for National Garden Scheme

A palace garden boasting a medieval herb garden is opening for visitors this weekend.

On Sunday, May 26, Southwell Minster’s Palace Gardens will be open for the National Garden Scheme in Nottinghamshire, giving visitors an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the special setting.

The garden will be open from 11am to 4pm, and each visit helps to raise money for the National Garden Scheme’s beneficiaries — including Macmillan and Parkinson’s UK.
