One of Norwich's hidden havens is opening to the public this summer.

The Bishop of Norwich’s garden in Cathedral Close is as old as the 900-year-old cathedral itself and opening to raise money for good causes.

Visitors are free to explore the vast gardens or bring a picnic blanket and relax on the lawn.

The outdoor space is run organically and includes a herb garden, long herbaceous borders, a ‘jungle’ walk, a large wildflower labyrinth and a fruit orchard.

Some of the events will feature a plant sale and live music as well as refreshments and cakes.

The Bishop's House garden will be open on July 17 for Girlguiding Catton District, July 24 for NSPCC and July 31 for Norfolk and Norwich Hospital Charity.

The opening hours on these days are 1pm to 4.30pm, with the last entry at 4pm.
