Gardens

Step outside Rhodes House to find yourself in our multi-award-winning gardens. In the last few years the Rhodes House Gardens have won three Silver and Four Gold awards in the Oxford in Bloom competition.

The gardens enjoy afternoon and evening sun throughout the summer and autumn, and are a perfect location for outdoor events.

The lovely Rhodes House gardens will have a naturalistic planting style to encourage biodiversity, reflecting the way that wild flowers grow. Areas of true wildflower meadow will bring pollinators into the garden and provide diverse wildlife habitats in the centre of the city.

Bat and bird boxes are part of the garden’s holistic design. Encouraging birds and other wild predators into the garden will control ‘pests’ such as greenfly and slugs, while natural biological controls will maintain an equilibrium with nature.
