RHS Bridgewater

Thursday 16th February 2023

Welcoming, relaxed, nurturing are just a few words that describe RHS Garden Bridgewater – 154 acres of glorious gardens set in Salford’s historical landscape. As the newest garden, RHS Bridgewater continues to evolve with help from award-winning designers and the local community.

The contemporary Worsley Welcome Garden greets everyone with its architectural topiary and lush seasonal planting. And from here on, it’s up to you what you discover next.

Step inside the walls of the Paradise Garden with its awe-inspiring blend of Mediterranean and Asiatic planting. Explore the Weston Walled Garden, one of the largest Victorian walled gardens in the UK – an impressive sight to behold. Discover the abundant crops growing in the Kitchen Garden, relax and indulge your senses in the Community Wellbeing Garden or follow the winding paths of the new jewel border of the Chinese Streamside Garden. And for the young at heart, no visit could be complete without exploring the Woodland Play area, set within cool and shady Middle Wood.

And it’s easy to get to with TransPennine Express. Once you arrive into Manchester you can take the Bridgewater express shuttle bus which runs seven days a week from 1 April to 1 October, from Manchester Piccadilly, to the garden. Adult ticket prices start from just £2 single (£4 return), child prices £1 single (£2 return) and under 5s are free.
