Experience the tranquillity of our Herb Garden and learn how the Benedictine monks made use of the garden hundreds of years ago.
Originally used by monks for cultivating plants for both medicinal and kitchen use, the Herb Garden was recreated in 2005 using herbs that match those used by Benedictine monks. There are elements of a traditional ‘physic garden’ in the variety of medicinal herbs and the two box hedge ‘knot gardens’, whose patterns reflect the stone tracery of Norwich Cathedral's renowned roof bosses. Benches and arches provide visitors with a space for quiet contemplation.
