Ralph Court Gardens

This really was a hidden gem. 12 themed mini gardens, and cafe, in a three acre garden. The tour starts, appropriately enough, with a cup of tea beneath Phileas Fogg as he begins his around the world 'garden' tour.

The tour begins in the fantasy world of:

Alice in Wonderland

 and Wind in the Willows

You travel through:

Italy - with a focal point musical fountain



You can travel by pirate ship

round the dragon pool

Then on to the land of mythology

Jack in the Green - but beware, as I was not, so intent on getting a close up of this amazing effigy in fir cones, I failed to heed the warning - he doesn't just spit, I got drenched!!

Persius in the Medusa temple                        Triton calling the waves

and the amazing elves in their conifer forest

even the toilets were themed

All in all a magical mystery tour

So if you ever find yourself near Bromyard in Herefordshire it's well worth adding Ralph Court Gardens to your itinerary.
