Late spring is the most beautiful time of year at Swinton Park, with the rhododendrons and azaleas in glorious, full bloom in the parkland and the first young vegetables coming up in our Walled Garden. Enjoy these to full advantage at our Garden Lunches and Garden Design Days, or our Estate Produce Lunches – starting a Celebration of Asparagus from 13th May. Our Deerhouse Lunches and Dinners are also running throughout the summer, including a new Barbecue Cook & Lunch course to polish up your grilling skills.
