History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The formal garden terrace near the house was removed in 1938 when the house was demolished, but the terraces were restored in 1974 to give Clumber Park something of the feel it would have enjoyed during its heyday.
Now Clumber Park offers over 3800 acres of park and garden landscape, with opportunities for recreation and relaxation in beautiful natural surroundings. Highlights of Clumber Park include:
Walled Kitchen Garden
A sheltered spot to enjoy floral displays, with a 400-foot long herbaceous border, heritage fruit trees, and a huge greenhouse stretching to 450 feet in length.
Completed in 1889, the chapel is topped by a spire 180 feet high. The architecture is a wonderful example of Victorian Gothic style, designed by GF Bodley for the 7th Duke of Newcastle.
A completely man-made, this sinuous lake has paths along its banks, punctuated by an ornamental bridge. Over 200 species of birds frequent the area, making walks around The Lake a great opportunity for bird-watching.
An area of winding paths designed to provide an area for the family to walk in seclusion. The Pleasure Ground paths have recently been restored, providing visitors with an opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the Dukes and their families, through a landscape of exotic plants.
This three-mile-long double avenue is over 170 years old. It is the longest such avenue in Europe and was intended to impress visitors approaching Clumber.
