We're here for you. Following the governments advice, The Gate is open for take away and delivery services only from Nandos and Pizza Hut.
We continue to monitor the situation and Government’s public health guidance closely, and we will keep all of our visitors updated via our website and social media channels, as the situation evolves.
Planted with insect and bee friendly plants to encourage biodiversity, the garden is also home to the first bio graffiti wall. A living wall planted with moss and ferns which changes and evolves with the seasons.
While you visit you can discover more about the plants in the garden and how they help to encourage pollinating insects and we hope one day that we might even be lucky enough to spot a Gatekeeper butterfly, after which the garden was named.
Launched in April 2019, the Gatekeepers Garden was developed in partnership with the charity Streetwise, the Northumbria Wildlife Trust and the National Trust GAP Project and the garden continues to flourish with the help of volunteers from 'Moving On Tyne and Wear'.
