This is a garden inspired by a love of classical music and in particular Handel’s Water Music, which was commissioned by King George I and had its debut on the River Thames.

A meandering path flows through this garden’s planting, trees and large sandstone rocks. Alongside is a rill that drops into a sunken area and pool beneath. Sandstone steps descend to this lower area, and blocks of the same material surround it, acting as seating from which to enjoy the occasional musical performance after supper. This mini amphitheatre, made of cut sandstone, will be home to various musical artists throughout the Show.
