Welcome to the Magic Garden

The Magic Garden is now closed for the winter months and will re-open on 1 April 2017. Thank you for your support and for ensuring that the Magic Garden was such a success in its opening year. The time has now come for the dragon and mythical beasts to enjoy a winter sleep and for work to commence on the moat which will be replaced with a new water fountain play-feature. Explore our exciting new interactive play garden for families. Populated by mysterious mythical beasts, with battlements to storm, towers to besiege, and even a secret grotto to discover, the Magic Garden is a new and unique way for your family to explore the palace’s past. Set within King Henry VIII’s former Tiltyard, where the elaborate spectacle of the Tudor tournament played out, the new garden takes inspiration from the fairy-tale-like quality of the Tudor Palace.
