Magnificent landscape garden designed by Humphry Repton in the 18th century.
Discover the Knot Garden, the Summer Garden, the Yew Hedge and the Peony Garden.
Antony also has the National Collection of Daylillies.
There are several sculptures dotted around the garden including Simon Thomas’s Hypercone and William Pye’s Water Cone.
The gardens are open on several days a week from April until the end of October – check the website for details.
Alice in Wonderland was filmed at Antony and on my visit, there were several props from the film still in the garden.
Next to Antony House is Antony Woodland Garden and Woodland Walks. This is NOT owned by the National Trust and separate tickets will need to be bought. It contains several modern sculptures as well as an International Collection of Camellias, Magnolias, Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Hydrangeas.
Antony is now owned by the National Trust although the Carew-Poles still live in the house.
National Trust members visit for free.
