Headed across the pond sometime, Road Trips Gardeners? Put the Bishop’s Palace Gardens in the center of Chichester, England, on your itinerary.

This hidden treasure within the City Walls (not surprisingly, next to the Cathedral) is now open to the public. Over the past three years, the Friends of Bishop’s Palace Garden have worked closely with the Chichester District Council to develop the project, which was previously private.

The garden includes rare and champion specimen trees plus thousands of new shrubs, trees, roses, climbers and herbaceous plants. Due to the historical value of the area, archaeologists were brought in to oversee the works carried out. The history of the area can be found on new information boards located in the garden, which provide access to the City Walls. The gardens date back to 1147-48 when the cathedral was moved from Selsey to Chichester.

They’re open from 8 a.m. until dusk. The Bishop’s Palace itself lies north of the eastern end of the garden and can be viewed through the gateway
