Sir Roy Strong’s,The Laskett Gardens

Did you know that Sir Roy Strong’s Laskett Gardens are now open to pre booked groups of over 20 in number on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Admission to the grounds is £10.00 per person which includes a decorative plan of the gardens by Jonathan Myles-Lea.

The Laskett Gardens are the largest private formal gardens to be created in England since 1945. Over almost four decades the historian, Sir Roy Strong and his late wife, the designer Dr Julia Trevelyan Oman, transformed a four acre field into a series of stunning garden rooms, vistas, ascents and descents. These include a rose garden, pleached lime avenue, orchard, kitchen garden, knot garden, fountains, statuary  and parterres as well as a spectacular array of topiary and rich herbaceous and prairie style boarders. Uniquely the garden tells the story of both their marriage and their creative lives in the arts.

The gardens are located close to Ross on Wye at Much Birch in Herefordshire. For enquirers about the garden please contact info@laskettgardens.co.uk or visit their website www.thelaskettgardens.co.uk 

Wilton Court is delighted to welcome groups of visitors to Laskett Gardens  to lunch  with prior arrangement.
