The best surviving gardens in the manner of the famous designer Le Notre to be seen in England today

Join us at Melbourne Hall Gardens

With its broad sweeps of lawn, avenues and unexpected vistas, it is one of the best known historic gardens in the country and the best surviving early 18th century English garden in the manner of Le Notre. That said, you don’t have to be a historian or horticulturalist to enjoy the beauty of Melbourne Hall Gardens.
