Houghton Hall Garden Centre, Carlisle

3.1
#1 of 7 in Shopping in Carlisle
The flagship of our company and the North West's premier garden centre.



This is no ordinary store; our garden centre is spread over 3 levels; with the main level home to core gardening, gift shop, clothing, the Topiary Coffee Shop and Laird’s Larder Food Hall; the second floor mezzanine displaying garden furniture and outdoor living and a basement level housing the World in Miniature Museum and attractions including the Craft Shop, Doll’s House Emporium, Hornby, Scalextric and Airfix.



The outdoor plant area has been created from the original walled kitchen garden of Houghton Hall and is the perfect setting for choosing plants.



The Laird’s Larder Farm Shop offers the finest quality local and regional foods; produce from the Laird’s Larder can be tasted within the Topiary Coffee Shop - our renowned fresh cream cakes are the only way to finish off your visit.



Situated next to our Farm Shop is our new Cafe Eden. This modern coffee bar offers a wide selection of drinks, homebaking, sweet treats and snacks, ideal if you wish to sit in or take away.

  • We stopped for breakfast. We had sausage and bacon sandwiches which we shared. They were lovely,loads of filling. Followed by an excellent coffee. Toilets were immaculate. This is a massive garden centre. It sells loads of other things. Well worth a visit could have spent a long time in there browsing everything they had to sell. Staff really friendl.
  • Nice place. Good café, nice little farm shop, great selection of garden plants and accessories, though at the premium end of the scale. A great fruit and veg store just outside. The endless bus tours that use the place as a destination/stop over can be annoying at times though.
