Arley Hall and Gardens

The stunning formal gardens at Arley Hall were created in the 19th and 20th centuries when the former landscape by ‘Capability’ Brown was swept away. The gardens are divided into different areas each with their own character.

The double herbaceous border is my favourite – in the words of Chris Beardshaw: ‘The jewel in their crown is the herbaceous borders which are not only the earliest but also one of the finest examples of this horticultural art you are likely to see anywhere in the world.’

But there’s lots else to explore including the Rootery, the Walled Garden, the Herb Garden, the Scented Garden and the Arboretum.

Peaky Blinders and Hollyoaks were both filmed here.

Arley Hall is home to Viscount and Viscountess Ashbrook.
