Description of Garden

The 18th century garden at Osterley is currently undergoing a major restoration which will return it to its former glory. Highlights include the Pleasure Grounds, a formal flower garden, wild flower meadow and several garden buildings including a Robert Adam designed Garden House stocked with orange and lemon trees. In late April / May there is a stunning display of bluebells. Within the 350 acres park and farmland there are lakes, meadows and many fine trees. A real glory is the House itself and no visit would be complete without an examination of its stunning interiors, perhaps the best remaining example of Adam's work

History Of Garden

In 1761, the Child family, founders of Child's Bank commissioned the fashionable architect Robert Adam to transform the neglected Tudor mansion at Osterley into an elegant neo-classical villa. Osterley became the family's principle country residence; used for entertaining and impressing their friends and business associates.

Mrs Sarah Child was an innovative garden designer, and in the late eighteenth century created a Garden to match the splendour of the House. Recent research has led to the exciting discovery of documents relating to her original designs, including plant lists, which will enable the National Trust to recreate the gardens.
