Summer Sunday openings at Raveningham Gardens, off the A146 at Hales, is running from July 16 to August 27, 11am to 4pm.

The Summer Sundays coincide with Raveningham’s agapanthus season.

Richard Hobbs, one of the gardening experts on BBC Radio Norfolk’s Garden Party and Raveningham’s garden consultant, will lead agapanthus tours in the garden on Sunday, July 16, at 11.30am, 1pm and 2pm. Tours start from the tearoom courtyard and are included in the garden entry charge.

Raveningham Hall is the home of Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon. The agapanthus varieties are Priscilla Bacon’s, late mother of Sir Nicholas, legacies in the garden.

Visitors will also enjoy herbaceous borders, Victorian glasshouses and a 14th century church.

Garden entry is £5 for adults and free for children under 16.
