The GardenDiscover a secret vegetable and cutting garden behind the Church of the Knights’ Templar (next to the Master’s Garden – see separate entry). Admire two fine mulberry trees planted to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in Fountain Court. Charles Dickens sought inspiration for scenes in Pickwick Papers and Great Expectations around these squares. A microclimate allows tender species to flourish. The Garden Room, normally for Members of Inn only, will be open, serving tea and cakes.
