About Carr Gate Garden Centre

Carr Gate Garden Centre has been operating as a garden centre since 2001 and joined the family-owned British Garden Centre Group in 2019.

The centre has an incredible plant department with everything you would need for your garden from compost to tools. Our friendly team of experts are always happy to help and share their knowledge whilst you shop. Alongside our plants, we have a fantastic range of gifts, homeware, furniture, and more! It’s an ideal place to visit as part of your day out or to pop in and pick up your gardening essentials.

The Gardener’s Retreat Restaurant is a great place to dine and relax whilst your children play in the soft play area. With a varied menu, there is something for everyone! Why not try our iconic golden battered fish and chips or our in-demand carvery? It’s a great place to visit for a lovely coffee and cake with your friends. Our centre and selected restaurant seating are dog friendly, and we can’t wait to meet your canine companion.

Wanting to visit us? We are located on Old Bradford Road. Close to the M1. The centre is accessible to all, as it is all on one level from the plants to the restaurant. Our centre welcomes coach trips, we are wheelchair accessible, we are dog friendly, and offer home delivery on larger items. We look forward to welcoming you into the centre.
