The Castle & Gardens of Mey

Description

Originally a Z plan castle bought by the Queen Mother in 1952 and then restored and improved. The walled garden and the East Garden were also created by the Queen Mother. An animal centre has been established over the last three years and is proving very popular with all ages. New herbaceous border, east facing, nestled under the west wall contains agapanthus, phlox, pink aconitum, sidalcea, verbascum and knautia among others.
