Camellia House

When local groups visit us in the evening at the Botanic Garden they may also, if they wish, tour the nearby Camellia House and learn about its history and its fascinating construction. Though we are lucky enough to hold keys to the Camellia House, we do not look after the plants; they are maintained by the Parks Department of Nottingham City Council.

The Camellia House was built in 1823 at the end of a major project to repair and remodel the Hall, home to the 6th Lord Middleton.  It is a legacy of a time when camellias were an exotic introduction and thought to be tender.
It's only a 5 minute walk from The Botanic Garden.

The Camellia House is listed Grade II*, and Wollaton Park is Grade II* on the English Heritage Register of parks and gardens of special interest. For more information on visiting Wollaton Park, click here.

The Camellias were in full flower early in 2014 (late March).
