Garden Organic Ryton
Garden Organic Ryton - run by the charity Garden Organic (formerly known as HDRA) - attracts more than 30,000 visitors each year.
This beautiful ten-acre site in Warwickshire has grown rapidly since it was established in 1985. The gardens now boast 30 different attractions including themed gardens, educational displays and wildlife areas – all demonstrating the wonders of organic gardening.
Families can have fun in our fascinating visitor centre, The Vegetable Kingdom, where they can learn all about vegetables they have never heard of before and take part in interactive games with a colourful cast of vegetable characters. Our Children’s Garden also offers an exciting place for discovery and play. There are also regular events and courses held at Ryton.
Visitors can enjoy delicious refreshments in our award-winning restaurant and café, or browse around our shop which sells a wide range of organic foods, gardening goods, books and gifts. We also offer a refreshingly different venue for conferences and weddings.
