Festival of Roses at Rosemoor is one of the big attractions of summer


Rose lovers really have one date in their diary for the next few weeks – the spectacular four weeks of the RHS Garden Rosemoor Festival of Roses. The hugely popular annual event opens on Saturday 15th June and runs through to Sunday 14th July. It is the chance for visitors to revel in the scent and sight of thousands of rose buds and blooms, a sensory celebration of summer.

Guests will  be able to immerse themselves in the fragrance and spectacle of thousands of roses in bud and in bloom in two dedicated gardens at the north Devon gardens.

Brought to their peak by the ideal conditions, there is no better place to admire the breadth of colour, shape and habitat of these national favourites in early summer.  It represents one of the UK’s largest collections of roses; Rosemoor is home to more than 200 different varieties and over 2,000 specimens, ranging from traditional cottage garden climbers to modern varieties, all planted in different settings and combinations in the heart of the garden.

Whether you are a gardener or not, it’s a sensory experience that is not to be missed! Visitors can join weekly walks or talk to the gardens advisory team to make the most of their visit. Or, join in on the Rose Weekend which  runs from Friday, 21st June to Sunday 23rd June where you can also enjoy family entertainment and an artisan craft and food market. Normal garden prices apply and no booking is necessary.
