Helmingham Hall Gardens

General Details

Helmingham is famous for its Grade 1 listed gardens, redesigned by Lady Tollemache (a Chelsea Gold Medallist) set in a 400 acre deer park surrounding a moated Tudor Hall. Visitors enjoy the rare chance to see Herds of Red and Fallow Deer living in the wild as well as the enchanting herbaceous borders, herb and knot gardens, and rose and wild gardens. A delicious range of local food is served in the Coach House restaurant and tearooms and the stable shops offer a wide range of local produce, plants and garden accessories and local crafts.

Great show dreadful parking
Lots of cars on show in great weather just let down by management who don't know how to park cars in fields miles from show, then you walk through half empty car parks, no one answering one and only phone number, get into the new millennium people, I know a lot of the cars were built in the 80s but we aren't still there, and don't put on your website you can ask parking attendants if you are not happy with a bumpy field to park your expensive car as they don't know anything about it
