Wrest Park Garden

Wrest Park Garden, and places to stay

Wrest Park is one of the most magnificent gardens in England, but one of the least well known.

Unlike 'Capability' Brown's natural landscape styling, favoured during the late 18th century, Wrest Park's formal gardens provide a fascinating history of gardening styles, laid out over 150 years and inspired by the great gardens of Versailles in France. 
Relying not only on extensive views, but also on revelation and mystery, Wrest Park succeeds in delighting the visitor with surprises at every turn. Yet of all its glories, the grandest is without doubt the recently restored domed Baroque pleasure pavillion, reminiscent of a great Italian cathedral.
Recent restoration has improved the gardens so if you have been before try visiting again to see the changes.
