Houghton Hall is the flagship of our company and is no ordinary store. Spread over 3 levels, with a main level home to core gardening, gift shop, clothing, the Topiary Restaurant, Cafe Eden and the Eden Food Hall and Butchers; a second floor mezzanine displaying garden furniture and outdoor living and a basement level housing the World in Miniature Museum and the Craft Shop.
