Frost on the long walk at Polesden Lacey

The Long Walk is closed at the moment

We've had to close the Long Walk at the moment. We've had lots of visitors over the last year and this is to give the grass time to recover, ready for spring.


" This garden was a playground for the rich and famous in the early part of the 20th century. Just a stone's throw from London, it was pure escapism for city life."
