Bishop's House, Linton Road, Oxford OX2 6UL will be open to the public on the afternoon of Saturday 7th August from 2pm to 5pm. This is a rare opportunity to see the garden which is in the process of restoration and redevelopment.

The extensive garden has mature herbaceous borders, an Italian Garden, woodland walk, bamboo "forest" and also vegetable and fruit areas.

Entrance to the Garden will cost £3.50 for adults and £1 for children aged between 5 and 16. Teas and cakes will be on sale as well. All the proceeds will be given to the Archway Foundation.

Archway is a voluntary organisation of which the Bishop of Oxford is a Patron. It has served those hurt by loneliness in Oxford and the surrounding area for almost 30 years.
Not all the garden is suitable for wheelchairs, and wheelchair access to toilets is difficult.
There are some unenven pathways, slippery in wet conditions, and an unfenced pond
