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.

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.

Following the success of our recent open day we are pleased to announce that we are opening Erlas Victorian Walled Garden to the public again on Sunday 13th June 2021, when there will be an opportunity to have a wander around the garden and also to purchase plants from our plant shop.

Entrance will be via the West Garden with exit via the shop and main gate, please follow the signs and be prepared to wait a few minutes should these areas get congested. To keep everybody safe we will be limiting the number of people who can access the shop area at any one time and we ask that you observe the 2 metre rule whilst in the garden.
