You can simply while away a couple of hours in the tranquil surroundings and catch up on the latest progress in the restoration process or take part in any one of the raft of activities on offer.

You can also enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and stock up on delicious home-grown vegetables or buy a selection of plants for your own mini estate.

The garden will be open every Wednesday between 11am and 3pm until September 24.

Sign up for a guided tour or a group visit – which includes talk, tour and tea – but be aware you’ll need a minimum of 15 people on each.

The very popular children’s gardening club takes place every Thursday morning.

The line-up includes Grow a Garden on July 31, Mini-beast Hunt on August 7, Summer Herbs on August 14 and Discover Seeds on August 21.

On Sunday July 13, the Walled Garden will open its doors from 11am to 3pm in support of the National Garden Scheme charities.

Refreshments will be available and there will be a plant stall.

Entry is £3.

If you can wait until Saturday, September 13, entry is free – as part of the national Heritage Open Days programme.

This year the focus will be on the garden during World War One. Visitors will be able to get a glimpse of what was going on at the Estate and discover the stories behind the 99 gallant men who grace the Luton Hoo Roll of Honour.

Cakes, teas, a guided tour and illustrated talks will be on the agenda.
