Description of Garden

The Gardens at Arbury, set in rolling parkland, include wooded walks and lakes and provide visitors with a superb example of the informal style of the late 18th century English landscape gardening.

Daffodils and bluebells in Springtime, the Azalea and Rhododendron Walks in May, the splendid Wisteria Wall in June are followed by a profusion of roses all through the Summer. A garden of peace and tranquility only a few miles from the industrial centre of England.

History Of Garden

Arbury Hall, an Elizabethan mansion house, was created from a 12th century monastic establishment and has been the home of the Newdegate family since the 16th century. It was Gothicised in the latter half of the 18th century by Sir Roger Newdegate in one of the finest examples of early Gothick Revival architecture. The Saloon was inspired by the fan vaulting in Henry VII's Chapel in Westminster Abbey.

George Eliot was born on the estate in 1819, where her father was the agent. She features Arbury Hall in several of her novels, especially Scenes of Clerical Life, where in Mr. Gilfil's Love Story, she portrays Arbury as Cheverel Manor and gives detailed descriptions of many of the rooms in the house, including The Saloon and Dining Room.

The fine 17th century Stables were designed by Sir William Wilson, the Midland architect and sculptor, though Sir Christopher Wren had provided drawings for them.
