 Garden Features & Events
Bluebell Festival - In conjunction with the Wildlife Trusts Cheshire. For about a fortnight (around the last week in April and the first two or three weeks of May) a walk in one of Cheshire's bluebell woods provides an inspirational experience: glorious seas of blue, the unforgettable perfume of the flowers and spring birdsong stimulating the senses and imagination.

 Description of Garden
Designer: Vernon Russell-Smith
Capesthorne Hall has a beautiful lakeside garden with herbaceous borders and a rose arbour. The rococo Milanese gates are particularly fine. There are some enjoyable woodland walks through an arboretum featuring some huge chestnuts and giant redwoods. The 18th century chapel is also worth visiting.
 History of Garden
The Parkland was laid out in the 17th and 18th centuries. Vernon Russell-Smith re-designed the former kitchen garden in the 1960's to create the lakeside gardens. The Hall dates from 1719.
