The Rock Walk at Bolesworth Castle

Enjoy The Rock Walk as Part of The National Garden Scheme

The Rock Walk at Bolesworth was established in 1986 by Anthony Barbour. Planted up with Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias it is an established spring woodland garden, well worth the fairly steep climb from the castle.

The drought of Summer 2022 brought a few losses, but by April/May 2023 the garden will be restored and will feature a Camellia walk with many interesting varieties as well as large leaf Rhododendrons and evergreen and deciduous Azaleas.

Above the Lion & Lamb cave, which is a feature on the Rock dating back to about 1800, there is a bench from which you can see the Liver Building in Liverpool and the Welsh Hills. The paths stretch about half a mile along the sandstone outcrop and are heavily planted with interesting Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias. All the plants are labelled.

The Rock Walk is open to groups under the National Garden Scheme in April and May 2023. Adults £5.00 and children can visit for free. Dogs must be kept on leads. We regret that there is no disabled access.
