Garden: Rowland Egerton-Warburton, who rebuilt Arley Hall in the early Victorian period, also lavished attention on the extensive gardens surrounding his family home. It was he who established the herbaceous borders at Arley, one of the very first examples to be planted in England. The gardens stretch to 12 acres around the Hall and are set within high hedges and brick walls. There are several unique garden rooms, including two walled gardens, a Tea Garden, plus wide lawns, a rock garden, herbaceous borders, fruit trees, and kitchen garden areas. From the gardens, an avenue of pleached limes leads to the Hall, and nearby ilex trees are clipped into tall topiary cylinders. Further from the house are woodland walks that add even more interest to this award-winning garden experience.
