Visitors will be able to smell the roses for longer as a county estate extends it open hours for summer. 

Helmingham Hall Gardens will be open on select nights until 9pm for Midsummer Nights allowing guests to enjoy the best of golden hour in the Rose Garden and the Hybrid Musk Rose Border. 

The first events will be taking place on Thursday, June 20 and Wednesday, June 26 with further dates following in July and August. 

Wrights Cafe will also stay open to provide guests with an evening feast over the fire as the sun goes down.

Brenden Arundel, head gardener at the estate, said: "The sunsets that we see across the estate are spectacular and these late openings are the perfect opportunity for people to enjoy the gardens during open hour."

Tickets are £9 for adults and £4.50 for children aged between five and 15 years old.

The extended hours make up part of the summer event lineup at Helmingham Hall. 

The estate is hosting live music and performances on Sunday afternoons until August 18.
