Enjoy the enchanting beauty of the famous Doddington Iris display in the romantic setting of Doddington Hall's Walled West Garden.

The irises rise above box-edged parterres enabling the petals to catch the afternoon sun. This ornamental plant with its popular sword-shaped petals has been grown at Doddington for over thirty years.

There is also the chance to see a unique collection of Dodsworth Irises cultivated by expert Bryan Dodsworth in the Walled Kitchen Garden.

Make a day of your visit by exploring Doddington Hall's farm shop, cafe, and award-winning restaurant.
