Melbourne is very well served for pubs, restaurants and shops. The parish church dedicated to St. Michael and St. Mary, located adjacent to Melbourne Hall is one of the finest in England.

Facilities and Access

At Melbourne Hall Gardens we have tried to make all areas accessible to wheelchairs, buggies and pedestrians. However, by the nature of the garden, there are some quite steep slopes and steps – although there is generally an alternative. Some paths are uneven due to tree roots and care needs to be taken. The gardeners are always happy to be of assistance whenever possible – do please ask if you require any assistance.

Public toilets are located in the Visitor Centre near the entrance to the gardens.

No dogs are allowed within the gardens except assistance dogs.

There is limited parking in Church Square and Castle Square.
