Goldney is home to one of the country’s the finest surviving examples of an 18th century grotto, and was created by wealthy merchant Thomas Goldney as part of his ornate town garden. The garden is tucked away behind Goldney House and the extensive grounds are home to a heritage orchard, a canal and tower, a rotunda and bastion, Corinthian columns, and the elaborate grotto.
You can view photographs of the house and garden in our gallery.
Tours of historic Goldney House and gardens can be arranged through the Conference Office.
Goldney Gardens and the Orangery can be hired by external organisations for fund raising garden parties. Organisations such as the Clifton and Hotwells Labour Party and Amnesty International regularly hold their summer garden parties at Goldney. If you would like to hire Goldney Gardens and/or the Orangery for your event please contact the Conference Office.
