About the garden
The old walled garden of Burton Agnes Hall has been redesigned in a neo-Elizabethan style (to complement the nearby house) and divided into numerous, thickly-planted gardens.
As well as a potager and herb garden, the garden incorporates unconventional features such as giant games boards for chess, draughts and snakes-and-ladders, a jungle garden and a maze. Slightly more conventional are the colour-themed gardens and sumptuous plantings of shrub roses, clematis and herbaceous plants.
There are also some horticultural surprises, such as cordylines and Echium pininana growing outside, and plant collections including hardy geraniums and campanulas.
