West Wycombe Park

A chance to enjoy a landscape that has changed little since it was first created over three hundred years ago.

Created by Sir Francis Dashwood, the garden at West Wycombe is entwined with his character and is full of illusion, eroticism, irony and classical references.

Discover follies, statues, temples and the lake. Many of the garden features have double-meanings so be warned, some of them are of a sexual nature.

Don’t miss the Church of St Lawrence, the Mausoleum and the Hell-Fire Caves on the hill overlooking the pleasure grounds.

For a more detailed study of Sir Francis and the landscape garden, read my blog.

National Trust members visit the house and gardens for free – the Hell-Fire Caves are under different ownership.
