Houghton Hall & Gardens, near Kings Lynn
Renovation of the 5-acre walled garden at Houghton Hall began in 1991.
The former kitchen garden at Houghton Hall had fallen into a state of disrepair and Lord Cholmondeley was keen to restore it as a memorial to his grandmother. Although an area of productive kitchen garden has been retained, the larger part of the garden has been laid out as a series of ornamental gardens in various styles.
The rose garden planted with nearly 150 varieties of both new and older roses. The central, box-edged parterre is based on the William Kent design for the ceiling in the White Drawing-Room.
Plenty more to see in the award-winning Walled Garden with sunken pool, glasshouse with orchid collection and Jeppe Hein Waterflame.
