Visit Our Lovely Gardens

Fanciful and elaborate gardens were designed to entertain Queen Elizabeth I during her reign. Our garden was created for your enjoyment, and as a living memorial to the time when Sir Walter Raleigh’s lost colonists lived in this very place over 400 years ago.

The Elizabethan Gardens is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located within the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site.
