The top path in the Workhouse Kitchen Garden

The Workhouse Museum Gardens will reopen from Thursday 15 April, with a family-friendly trail to guide visitors around the site. The gardens will be open Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 3pm.

Visitors to the Workhouse Museum Gardens will be able to enjoy displays of spring flowers, grown using heritage bulbs, as well as the blossoming apple trees and the rhubarb collection in the Kitchen Garden.

The ‘Inside Out’ Museum Trail will help visitors discover some of the fascinating features of the Workhouse Museum from the outside, as well as providing an opportunity to explore the beautiful gardens. The museum buildings will not be open to the public, but a peek inside the windows will give a glimpse of life in the workhouse.

Families can also take part in the Bee Happy Trail, learning about nature as they explore the gardens. A candle-making activity will also be available, using sheets of beeswax.

The Workhouse Museum Gardens will be open to visitors from Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 3pm, from Thursday 15 April. To manage numbers and ensure social distancing, visitors should pre-book timed ticket slots online.
