The award-winning gardens at Wigan and Leigh Hospice will once again open as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

Our gardens have colourful flower beds at the front and behind the hospice visitors will discover three ponds and a Chinese bridge donated by the Whitworth Art Gallery painted in glorious rainbow colours.

Our Dedicate A Daisy memorial garden offers a chance for reflection and as the gardens are adjacent to Amberswood Common they are a haven for wildlife.

The gardens at the hospice are a hidden sanctuary for our patients and their visitors right in the middle of Hindley.

We love to welcome people from our community who haven’t seen our beautiful gardens before or those who haven’t been here for a while and want to see how much they have changed. There is a lot to discover here and beautiful gardens to explore.

North West In Bloom awarded our gardens Gold in 2018 and Level 5 (Outstanding) in 2019 in the Hospice category.

In 2021 we were delighted to again be awarded Level 5 Outstanding at North West in Bloom in recognition of our stunning gardens.

Pre-booking is available but not essential. If you would like to pre-book please visit:

Admission for adults is £4. Children may visit free of charge.

Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell.

The National Open Gardens Scheme is an initiative which sees over 3,700 private gardens opening for charity every year. One of the main beneficiaries of the NGS is Hospice UK, the national membership organisation which supports the work of hospices across the country.
