We’re lucky to have such a gem on our doorstep. Houghton Hall offers all the usual garden centre things from plants and garden ornaments to furniture and even hot tubs. There’s also an aquatic centre to pick out stock for your pond, or your indoor tank, as well as a pet shop section where you can have a look at the rabbits and guinea pigs for sale. Children will enjoy the outdoor play area, miniature world, craft shop and Hornby, Scalextric and Airfix shop downstairs. After all that to see and do, a wander through the beautiful gift shop will find you in the Topiary Coffee Shop on the far side of the building where you can rest your legs and enjoy a good cup of tea. There is also an outdoor clothing department adjacent.
Our personal favourite thing about Houghton Hall though has to be the Laird’s Larder farm shop which offers the finest quality in local and regional foods and has it’s own delicious deli counter too… we guarantee you won’t be able to come back empty handed!
