The garden is wheel chair friendly and all areas are accessible.
Start your journey through the African jungle taking the tree top walkway. Walk behind the water cascade and enjoy the lush tropical planting.
Visit the incredible Triton Pool with its water jets but beware of the rising water. Pass through the Pirate garden with its  run aground galleon.
See the beautiful Italian Piazza incorporating a church and bell tower with pencil cupressus conifers under-planted with lavender.
Pass by Toad Hall in the Willow garden before walking through the Gunnera maze. If you do find your way out then make sure you do not disturb 'Edwina' , our resident dragon!Take a seat in the tranquil Japanese garden with tea house and trickling tree waterlily pool.
   

Monet to make ‘impression’ at Ralph Court Gardens 
 Claude Monet’s painting, ‘The Japanese Footbridge’ has inspired us to recreate this masterpiece but with all things in the garden, with a twist.
 Monet’s work has been brought to life and visitors will be able to not only see his painting but actually walk into it!

A gallery of his work has been built with views over a recreation of his most elaborate Giverny garden. We had great fun researching and recreating this Monet masterpiece and hope he would have been pleased with its creation. Monet’s own garden located in the North West of Paris is different from the painting as he uses his artistic flair and imagination to create his ultimate waterlily garden.
