Plan your Visit


Only five miles from Newmarket, our garden centre at Fordham joined the Scotsdales family in 1991.

Today it has a superb plant department and is packed with ideas for your garden, including lots of BBQs and comfortable, stylish garden furniture. And there’s a wonderful gift department as well, to help you make the very most of your indoor and outdoor space.

Smaller than our other garden centres at Great Shelford and Horningsea, Fordham has a lovely boutique feel that keeps many visitors coming back again and again. Our Sunflower Café at Fordham has an outdoor terrace that overlooks the plant area – it’s a perfect spot to sit in the sun with a cuppa, just enjoying the good things in life.
