Scampston Walled Garden

Scampston Walled GardenScampston Walled Garden

A stunning modern garden, with striking perennial meadow planting, contemporary waves of grass, traditional spring/autumn borders and something of interest whatever the season. Created by internationally acclaimed designer, Piet Oudolf and described in The Times as 'a gem', every aspect of this garden speaks of quality. 'This is Oudolf at his inventive and confident best - an historic garden of the future' Good Gardens Guide. 

The plant sales area specialises in unusual species which, along with an onsite restaurant using ingredients grown in the Walled Garden, makes this a modern plantsman's paradise. 

The gardens surrounding Scampston Hall, 19th century rock garden and the Cascade Circuit Walk with children's play area are also open to the public.
