Our Rose Garden includes over 900 repeat flowering roses in shades of red, orange and yellow. Reinstated in 2014 based on a 1950s design by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, they bloom from late May until September.
Redesigned in 1862 in an Italianate style, the formal gardens feature terraces, perfect lawns, classical statuary and a parterre full of vibrant colour. The walled garden and pleasure grounds offer a more relaxed space, ideal for play and picnics.
Explore the Rose Garden at Basildon Park; a garden created by the Iliffes, and now being lovingly restored by our team. Don't forget to head to the Stableyard shop to find some roses of your own to take home.
Butterflies are perhaps our best-loved insects; bright, colourful emblems of warmth and sunshine. Why not see for yourself and enjoy a stroll in the sunshine at one of our brilliant butterfly spots across the Thames and Chilterns?
