Rare Plant Fair 2023

  • 10th September 2023
  • 10am – 4.30 pm (last entry 4.00pm) 


The Bishop’s Palace is proud to welcome back The Rare Plant Fair!

‘We carefully select our nurseries to ensure that they are genuine growers who produce most or all of the plants that they sell themselves. The nurseries that exhibit at each fair are chosen so that we can offer the widest possible range of plants to our visitors, including perennials, shrubs and trees, alpines, bulbs and exotic plants.

All of our nursery owners are experts in the plants that they grow, and some are National Collection holders. They are all always happy to offer all the advice that you need to select and grow the right plants for your garden. And don’t forget that all of our nurseries are happy to bring pre-ordered plants to the fairs that they are attending, so don’t forget to visit their websites to see what they can offer!’ – The Rare Plant Fair

Tickets include 14 acres of stunning RHS partnered gardens and access to the medieval Palace and Chapel.


  • Discounted rate – £8 adult
