Summer holiday fun

As well as a giant maze, Storybook-themed play den and play trail in the woods, we have lots of events designed especially for families.

For an outdoor adventure in the gardens pick up a free summer trail sheet from the Information Centre.

First World War

Within months of the start of the First World War, a hospital was opened in the grounds here to treat injured soldiers.

The memorial garden in which those who died were buried is a poignant reminder of the war. 

The South Terrace

Stop by the Terrace to see how our multi-year conservation project is progressing. The Terrace has been at the centre of the estate for 350 years - keep an eye out for paintings in the landscape that show how it, and its' views, have changed over time.

Garden sculpture

From the grand Fountain of Love on the main drive, to the ancient baboons in the Long Garden the gardens reveal a magnificent collection of sculpture.

Can you find the piece created by William Waldorf Astor?
