Birkheads Secret Garden and Nursery

Birkheads Secret Garden and Nursery

Tucked between Beamish Open Air Museum and Tanfield Railway this three-acre hillside garden recently reopened from its winter break and is a treat for garden aficionados. The family who tend to the garden moved in in 1987 with their family and dreams of living the good life. The garden in full flourish is a riot of colour with roses, hellebores, waterlilies and tulips that attract an enormous range of wildlife including dragonflies, butterflies, ladybirds and 43 different varieties of bird.

Must see: Look out for the 10 varieties of butterflies that visit the gardens from July to September.
