Your visit


Originally designed as a pleasure ground for Baron Ferdinand's guests staying at the Manor, the gardens are now enjoyed by visitors for their beauty and calm.

Glimpse the gardens on film

The gardens were the vision of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, who created the Manor at the end of the 19th century. What began as a bare hill in 1874, is now an exceptional example of Victorian horticulture including formal gardens, trees and walks.
