Howick Hall Gardens and Arboretum have been owned by the Grey family since 1319.  Discover the history of the 2nd Earl, after whom the famous tea is named, wander through the beautiful gardens created by the 5th Earl Grey and his family or for the more energetic explore the arboretum – a united nations of shrubs and trees covering over 65 acres.  Take a rest from exploring in the Earl Grey Tea House for a bite to eat and a cup of Earl Grey Tea.

The Sensory Garden features a special selection of plants and materials laid out in such a way as to stimulate the senses of sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.  Just a few of the highlights include a labyrinth circle, interactive water feature, willow dome circle, tumbled glass pond with wooden bridge and a wooden swing seat.  The aim of the sensory garden is to provide both children and adults with autism a safe and stimulating environment to explore their senses.
