Fodor's Review

Half a mile north of town, this delightful garden is a rare survivor from the exuberant rococo period of English garden design (1720–60). After 50 years in its original form, the 6-acre garden became overgrown. . Fortunately the rediscovery of the 1748 painting of the garden by Thomas sparked, in the 1980s, a full-scale restoration. Now you can view the original structures—such as the pretty Gothic Eagle House and curved Exedra—take in the asymmetrical vistas, and try the modern maze, which, unusually, has three jails you can discover. It's also famous for its snowdrops which bloom in January and February. There's a restaurant and a shop as well.
