Park & Gardens

The Gardens

Ushaw's gardens have been a main feature of the grounds almost as long as the College itself has been established, and boast a beautiful selection of flowers and greenery, which change with the seasons. We also have an old lake and many wonderful woodland and gardens walks for our visitors to enjoy. 

Visitors are free to explore the beautiful gardens for themselves, with paths winding through the ancient trees and beautiful flower beds that have characterised Ushaw's gardens for more than a century.  We also have some modern additions to the garden, in the form of gorgeous wood carvings, courtesy of the acclaimed carver Tommy Craggs.
