Elgood’s Brewery garden in Wisbech is throwing its doors open to the public as part of a National Open Gardens Scheme.
The family-owned garden, situated immediately behind the North Brink Brewery, covers around four acres and features mature specimen trees of about 250 years old, including oak, variegated sycamore, beech, tulip and ginkgo.
These provide a backdrop to the garden design. Traditional and new features are incorporated including a lake, lawns, rockery, herb garden, water and grass garden, maze and dipping pool.
It is a peaceful oasis with a visitors centre which caters for snack lunches and teas and has a licensed bar serving a range of Elgood’s award-winning beers.
There is also a well-stocked shop with plants for sale and a range of bottled beers and gifts. There are disable-friendly facilities and a large free car park.
