Welcome to Kenchester Water Gardens

As we find ourselves struggling with tightening government restrictions and disruption to 'normal' life and family routines, it is important we take every opportunity to relax and unwind.

Watching fish in aquariums has long been identified as of benefit to both physical and mental well-being.


Our knowledgeable staff are able to advise on every aspect of aquarium installation and maintenance, and also to help in your selection from our wide range of both cold water and tropical fish and turtles.

In line with current government legislation retailers of products and food for the upkeep and welfare of animals can remain open and with strict COVID measures in place, we are open Monday-Saturday 9-3pm and Sunday 10:30-3pm.

please see our Facebook site for updates on tea rooms.

Kenchester Tea Rooms

If you're feeling peckish, why not pop in?

The smell of real home cooking wafts from the Tea Rooms at all times of day – elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea – there is always something on the menu which will titillate your palate.

On Carvery days the Tea Rooms fills up quickly – so if possible, ring to make a booking. Incidentally the scones with jam and cream are legendary!

We would love you to make a booking
