Quex Gardens

Quex Gardens

For generations, the landscaped gardens at Quex House have been enjoyed by the Powell-Cotton family, the estate’s owners, and their friends.

Quex Park where visitors can wander through 7 acres of beautiful gardens, discover our historic Victorian Walled Gardens and rare cucumber pit, play croquet on the lawn, glimpse birds of prey hovering in the open skies or stroll along the woodland walks and discover a wealth of wildlife.  Alternatively they can just relax with a picnic, enjoy the tranquillity and watch the sunlight glisten on the fountain pond with its listed statues and monument.
Quex has a family history dating back as far as the 15th Century.  King William III (1689 – 1702) stayed at the original Quex Mansion whilst awaiting a favourable wind to take him across the Channel from Ramsgate.  
The family’s love of outdoor spaces is evident today in the stunning Victorian layout and planting. The grounds are tended to ensure that this legacy will be enjoyed by generations to come. 
The garden is in the process of restoration  many of the plantings may not yet be mature.
