Edwardian Gardens

The Edwardian Gardens were designed to please the eye (check out the photo gallery below) and delight the senses. Stroll through the lush gardens and experience the “outdoor rooms” – each with its own unique perspective, framed by sweeping lawns that follow the Edwardian Garden design. All accessible, with pathways taking you to a simpler time.

Today the Edwardian Gardens offer thousands of vibrant annuals and perennials including 5,706 tulips, a Collection Garden featuring magnificent lilies as well as a Rose Garden with hundreds of fragrant blossoms.

Enjoy the timeless beauty of true Edwardian-style gardens, restored to uphold the rich and majestic history of Government House which features a museum that gives you a glimpse of life at Government House at the turn of the 20th Century.
