Visitor Information

Visiting Vandeleur Walled Garden

Visiting the Walled Garden is an experience that extends into the quaint courtyard setting of the Vandeleur Centre and its number of quality facilities:

Coffee Shop

There’s no better way to add to the pleasure of visiting a beautiful garden than topping it off with a fine cup of tea or coffee and some delicious treats. Whether it’s a slice of scrumptious home-made cake, a just-out-of-the-oven scone or freshly-cut sandwich – we’ve got just the thing to refresh and revive.

Conference Facilities

Our modern and well-equipped conference area makes the perfect venue for an undisturbed, out-of-the-office meeting or workshop - with the Garden providing the ideal breakaway spot. The suite has capacity for up to 80 people and is available for meetings from early morning through to late evenings.

• The suite has good, natural lighting.
• Ideal for corporate presentations, staff training, interviews, AGM's and committee meetings
• The room is equipped with black out blinds, a new projector and projector screen. We can also provide a flip chart and overhead projector as well while the Coffee Shop can take care of your catering needs. Please contact us (link) for further detail, rates and bookings.
