Overview

This is one of the most magnificent yet least well-known gardens in England. Unlike ‘Capability’ Brown’s natural landscape styling, favoured during the late 18th century, Wrest Park’s formal gardens provide a fascinating history of gardening styles, laid out over 150 years and inspired by the great gardens of Versailles in France. The gardens are overlooked by a stylish French-style 18th century mansion and contain wonderful garden buildings. Make sure you explore the early 18th century pavilion designed by Thomas Archer – an architectural gem! Stroll around the Orangery, Italian Garden and Parterre with magnificent statues that date from the 1830s.
