The Bressingham Gardens
Low Road, Bressingham Norfolk
Alan Bloom MBE VMH founder of the Blooms nursery business created the Dell Garden and its famous 'Island Beds' from 1955-1962. This unique garden is now world renowned for its collection of nearly 5,000 species and varieties of hardy perennials set in a park like meadow. Alan Bloom was one of the great British plantsmen of the twentieth century. A gardener from the age of 16, he bought Bressingham Hall, Norfolk in 1946 and founded a world-renowned gardening dynasty that today spans three generations. Some of the gardens are open to the public and also in the same location is Alan Bloom's magnificent collection of Steam Engines, the second largest collection in Europe after York. The 11 kilometres of working railway provide a choice of rides and there's even a steam-driven roundabout. A new Dad's Army collection has been launched this year with a trip down memory lane to the famous Warmington On Sea. Together, the attractions make a wonderful day out for all the family.
