Loseley Park and Gardens


Prologue

 

 

 

Loseley Park lies to the south of Guildford, close to the A3 with its direct links to the M25 and London and offers the visitor a peaceful and fascinating day out as well as being a highly regarded venue for corporate hospitality and shows.

Loseley has been in the same family for over 400 years. The house is a good example of Elizabethan architecture, featuring many fine works of art including paintings, tapestries and panelling from Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace.

The Walled Garden, based on a design by Gertrude Jekyll, has been compared favourably with gardens of national repute and contains a series of ‘rooms’ with different themes gardens running through them.

The redevelopment of the Garden commenced in 1993/4 with the Rose Garden and continued with the Herb Garden, Flower Garden, White Garden and most recently, the Organic Vegetable and Cut Flower Garden. The Gardens are surrounded by a magnificent old wall of similar age to the House and contain a Vine Walk, a huge spread of Wisteria, the Moat and Moat Walk, and the old Mulberry Tree.

A plant sales area is open in the summer months where plants grown in the garden are available for sale.
