St Peter's Church Gardens

The attractive one acre gardens of St Peter and St Paul's Church are centrally located in the heart of the historic market town of Wisbech.

The award-winning gardens were created by Wisbech Borough Council and many local volunteers to honour the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The peaceful atmosphere within the gardens is an excellent place for visitors to relax and unwind. St Peter's Church Gardens has maintained a Green Flag Award over the past few years.


St Peter's Gardens boast annual floral displays, rose beds, a sensory garden, water feature and many mature trees. The focal feature of the gardens is the impressive 12th Century church. This historic church is a venue for year-round services and events, and houses one of the finest organs in East Anglia.

These well-established gardens achieved the 'Best Local Authority Floral Display' in a recent Anglia in Bloom competition. Every summer St Peter's Church and Gardens are transformed into a celebration of artful floral displays during the popular Rose Fair. The Rose Fair is considered to be one of East Anglia's premier flower festivals, with craft markets, parades and music.


The Friends of St Peter's Church Gardens community group is involved with a variety of projects that improve the gardens for everyone. If you would like to join the friends group please get in touch with Parks and Open Spaces by email. After a visit to these gardens you will discover why they are known locally as a 'gem' of Wisbech.


St Peter's Church Gardens are located just off the central market square in Wisbech town centre. Simply follow the pedestrian signposts situated around town. If arriving by car there is a free public car park adjacent to the gardens on Church Terrace.
