The gardens at Norwood extend to about 3 acres. They consist of a central path, the 'Long Walk', with individual gardens on either side. As you progress along the Long Walk at first each of these gardens is about the size of a large domestic garden. Each has its own character in terms of planting and landscaping. In the lower part of the gardens, after the 'Bogless' Bog and Quiet Gardens there is a more open feeling with the daffodil beds to the left and the sunken Dark & Light Garden to the right. The Dark & Light garden is still under construction.
The design of the site 'borrows' the surrounding countryside and aims to provide a natural progression from the landscaped gardens to the agricultural landscape in the middle distance and hills beyond.
There are seats throughout the gardens.
