Enjoy an immersive garden experience at Holker with new app

VISITORS to Holker Hall can enjoy an immersive audio tour of its award-winning gardens thanks to an innovative new app.

The team at Holker have linked up with Candide UK, a social platform that provides people with the chance to enjoy a guided tour around select gardens nationwide via their mobile phone.

Visitors simply need to download the application from iTunes or their Google Play Store.

The free-to-use app tracks the location of the phone to deliver insights from head gardener Glyn Sherratt at various points of interest as visitors move through the garden.

Holker Hall and Gardens general manager Heather Creasey explained the link between the stately home and Candide UK would offer visitors the chance to see the grounds with a new perspective.

“Holker is well known for its beautiful gardens which look stunning throughout the seasons,” she said.

“Our new link with Candide UK offers visitors something a little bit different – the chance to enjoy an audio tour of the garden at their own pace with insights and information from our award-winning head gardener Glyn.”
