Welcome to The Erlas Victorian Walled Garden Website

Erlas Victorian Walled Garden is based in Wrexham and aims to promote and protect the health of people with disabilities by providing meaningful daytime activity, education and work experience in a garden business environment, allowing individuals to develop their mental and physical capabilities, thus improving their quality of life.

In achieving this we promote the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment of Erlas Victorian Walled Garden, for the education and enjoyment of the public.

We welcome visitors Monday – Friday 11:00 – 15:00 for the purchase of plants and seasonal vegetables. In addition we hold a number of events during the year.

Forthcoming Events:

Summer Fayre – Saturday 6th July 2019

Following our decision to postpone the Summer Fayre due to the recent extreme weather, we are pleased to announce that we have now re-scheduled the day.

We are delighted that the Summer Fayre will be back this year on the revised date of Saturday 6th July, 1pm – 4pm.

This is always a great event, with entertainment, the chance to wander round the garden and enjoy the atmosphere. Refreshments available to buy.

Entrance £1 per adult, under 16’s free.

National Garden Scheme – Sunday 15th September 2019

Join us on Sunday 15th September for our second NGS garden opening, 10.30am – 3.30pm. This time of year is fascinating in the garden, as the fruits of our labour are bountiful.

Plus there will be light refreshments available to buy on the day (proceeds to Erlas Victorian Walled Garden charity).
