The 14 acres of gardens at The Bishop’s Palace are a haven of tranquility and peace. In January 2016, the Gardens were awarded RHS Partner Garden status.



The Bishop’s Palace & Gardens has been home to the Bishops of Bath and Wells for over 800 years and this stunning medieval palace is open for all to enjoy.
