Grimsthorpe Castle

Beautiful formal gardens including topiary gardens, intricate parterre and a rectangular walled Potager created by Lady Ancaster with John Fowler and Peter Coates in 1960s.

Visit the Walled Garden a short walk from the house and discover several sculptures including work by Harry Brockway (illustrated), Peter Foster, Andrew Whittle, Lucy Churchill and Una Sullivan.

Stunning herbaceous borders frame the view across the lake.

Other features include the Groves and the Long Plantation.

Lots of places to walk as well as bike trails through the surrounding estate – dogs are allowed in this area on leads.

The gardens are open from Sunday to Thursday during the season.

Work is underway to create a new art gallery in the grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle.
