The Commissioner’s House
Created in the 1640s, the Garden was originally intended for the private enjoyment of the Dockyard’s resident Commissioner – the most senior official in the Dockyard. The Garden has undergone many changes in the last three centuries, it is still a beautiful and tranquil space but is now available for all visitors of the dockyard to enjoy.
Visits to the Garden are included in your dockyard annual ticket, check its open before visiting, it’s very popular for weddings in the summer months!
Originally the garden incorporated one of Britain’s earliest Italianate water gardens. You can see the Edwardian glasshouse with a great vine, an 18th century ice house and a 17th century mulberry tree still to this day!
