Madingley Hall Garden and Estate

Back to Activities

Madingley Hall's magnificent garden is open to the public all year round. There is also a walking and running route around the Hall's estate.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • being outside and in the natural world is a good stress buster;
  • physical exercise improves mood – there is a route around the estate for walking or running;
  • it is a peaceful place to have a moment of calm.

What to expect

There are flat gravel paths around the garden which are wheelchair and pushchair accessible, and there are lots of benches and places to sit.

Small group tours of the garden and Hall can be arranged by appointment. Dogs are not allowed in garden.

There is also a circular 2.4 km walking and running route around the estate. Most of the route is over flat terrain and well-behaved dogs on leads are allowed.

There is a cafe and toilets on site, and ample free parking.
