Welcome to St Nicholas Gardens, Richmond, North Yorkshire

The gardens belonging to St Nicholas, the oldest dwelling in Richmond, are a series of compartments laid out and planted from 1905 by the Hon. Robert ‘Bobbie’ James. Today the gardens are being sensitively resurrected and replanted in the spirit of their founder.

About 7 acres, amongst the Garden Rooms are a Formal Garden bounded by topiary hedges, a Cottage Garden, Rock Garden, Potager and Herb Garden and splendid Long Borders.
