Houghton Hall

The Walled Garden is divided into several ornamental gardens.

It was recreated in 1990s in memory of the present Lord Cholmondeley’s grandmother. The gardens were designed by Isabel and Julian Bannerman.

Look out for the double-herbaceous border, an Italian garden, a formal rose parterre, fruit and vegetable gardens, a glasshouse, temple, statues, fountains and modern sculptures.

To the west side of the house, sculptures merge with the landscape. Some created specially for Houghton, they include works by James Turrell, Richard Long, Anya Gallaccio, Stephen Cox, Rachel Whiteread and Henry Moore.

The gardens are open on selected days only from May until September – check the website for details.

Historic Houses members visit for free at certain times – see website for details.
