Join us for a paddle, a delicious lunch and a leisurely stroll around 12 acres of Victorian style gardens this summer. Thornbridge Estate is open for its first full spring and summer – 7 days a week, 10am till 4pm!
If you’re looking for a vibrant, quirky, family and dog friendly place to spend the day, then look no further. There is something for everyone on the estate, whether the plant lover, the art enthusiast, the architect or the coffee connoisseur – come and find out what Thornbridge has for you!
Underlying everything that happens at Thornbridge Estate is our vision; Thornbridge For Everyone, Forever. It is the reason £20 million has been invested in the place in 20 years. It is the reason that every penny of profit made goes back into restoring and securing the future of Thornbridge. It is also the reason that people come once, and can’t help but come again.
We are now, thanks to our new café and road, able to open to the public 7 days a week, from 10am until 4pm. We have loved welcoming you all over the past year. The gardens, the café and the fountains look their best with people in them!
Quackers Café is just a step off the Monsal Trail and, with beautiful views of the garden and a newly refurbished decking area, getting a coffee and a cake never tasted so good… The cake served in Quackers is handmade in the on site, award-winning bakery – The Bakehouse. The now famous sausage rolls are made from meat which is reared and looked after by the Thornbridge Smallholding.
You will find The Thornbridge Emporium just next to Quackers Café. Filled to the brim with a wide variety of plants to take home as well as lots of other lovely things such as toys, clothes, jewellery and books – all locally sourced or made by small, unique businesses. The Emporium also houses the brand new Quack n’ Go, an express version of Quackers Café so you can skip the queue and grab a snack!
There will be something different to discover every time you visit this ever-developing place of warmth and weirdness… we hope to see
