As you walk through the Garden Gate at Melbourne Hall, the landscape takes your breath away. This is the best surviving example in the manner of the famous designer Le Notre to be seen in England today.
The Garden dates from 1704 and was designed by Sir Thomas Coke who had studied architecture and Garden design in France.
Delightful avenues with statuary and fountains including the large urn known as the Four Seasons from Nost's foundry. You cannot miss the famous bird cage arbour known as the Birdcage which is set by the lake.
There is the Yew Tunnel,  and ponds, streams as well as good herbaceous borders. Terraces lead to the lake.
