Mount Ephraim Gardens

About

Over three centuries of memories, to be continued (by you).....

Mount Ephraim Gardens is a beautiful place to visit, with plenty to offer and delight visitors. Unwind in these ten acres of gardens, set in the heart of an 800 acre estate with magnificent views over the Swale and Thames Estuaries. Whether you choose to enjoy the tranquility of the Japanese gardens, take on the challenge of the wildflower and grass maze or just relax on the Edwardian tea room terrace, Mount Ephraim gardens have the power to charm you all.

Mount Ephraim Gardens are home to an extensive collection of spring bulbs, trees and shurbs including Rhododendrons, many types of Camelias and Magnolias. Visitors can experience the sight of the Millennium Rose Garden in full bloom and the intoxicating colours and scents in mid summer. The unique 'Miz Maze' creation, planted with ornamental grasses and herbaceous perennials is something to look forward to as the days get shorter with its dancing grasses and dramatic swirls of wild flowers, which are alive with pollinating insects and wildlife best seen as the summer draws to a close.

Mount Ephraim has been home to the Dawes Family for over 300 years and is a lasting monument to a more graceful and leisurely age. Every time of year at Mount Ephraim Gardens brings it own distinctive pleasures. Enjoy simple pleasures in life at Mount Ephraim Gardens with a wonderful atmosphere of peace and charm that have offered visitors a tranquil escape for many years.

The Garden Season commences on 1 April (or Good Friday - whichever comes first in the calendar year) and draws to a close on 30 September. The gardens are open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as Bank Holidays.
