Melbourne Hall

Delightful gardens with herbaceous borders, avenues, terraces with statues and fountains by Jan van Nost the Elder. Other features include the Yew Tunnel and Birdcage by Robert Bakewell c.1705-10.

Extensive restoration of the gardens was carried out at the beginning of the twentieth century and continues today.

The layout and the majority of the main features of the garden have changed little since the early 18th century.

The house is now the seat of Lord and Lady Ralph Kerr.

The gardens are open on Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays in the afternoons. The house is open in the afternoon of most days in August.

Historic Houses and RHS members visit for free.
