The Bishop’s Palace Garden, Exeter

We frequently go into Exeter from Sandays; it is a short drive or train ride and a lovely city. We had never been to the Bishop’s Palace Garden until the other day however. As it is not visible and only occasionally open to the public it is easy to forget all about it, but we are so glad that we eventually got there! The garden covers 3 acres which seems absolutely incredible that it exists right in the heart of Exeter. Bounded by the old Roman bank and city wall to the east and by the cathedral to the west, it dates back to around 1050 and is a very special place. Look out for further opening dates this summer in the Diocesan newsletter.
