AboutSituated just outside the south door of The Great Hall is a recreation of a medieval herbarium named after Queen Eleanor of Provence, wife of Henry III, and her daughterin-law Queen Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I.
It was opened by Her Majesty The Queen Mother in 1986 as part of the Domesday celebrations. Turf seats and bay hedges surround a herb garden and features include a fountain, camomile lawn, tunnel arbour and stone seats – so one can sit and admire!
Open: All year, daily 10am–5pm except Christmas and Boxing Day and occasionally closed for civic events.
Guided tours available upon request. Group booking advised.
Nearest parking at Tower Street Car Park.
