5 things to enjoy at Painshill in April

April at Painshill

1. The Gothic Tower

After over two years of closure, due to social distancing guidelines, The Gothic Tower will open from Saturday 2 until Tuesday 19 April (excluding Monday 11 April). Climb to the top, admire the view and treat yourself to snacks and drinks in the pop-up café.

2. Wild Garlic in flower

Wild garlic grows all the way along the banks of the River Mole. You can spot the stunning delicate white flowers when walking along the south of the lake and around the Mausoleum and cascade.

3. Fresh leaves on the trees

Spring has truly sprung! The fresh leaves are coming out of the trees, starting with the ash and sycamore trees.

4. Easter Egg Trails

Giant Easter egg characters are waiting in the landscape. It is a trail that’s perfect for all the family. Pick up a route map in the Visitor Centre and see if you can spot them all.

5. Vine emerging

The landscape staff and volunteers have been working hard in the vineyard in the last few months. New vines were planted in the autumn and damaged and old posts have been replaced. Hopefully we will soon start to see the fruits (grapes!) of their labours. April is when the fresh growth starts to appear.
