A Tour of its Grounds, Gardens and Veteran Trees
Saturday 9 October
Meet at the Stables Car Park, Warwick Castle
9.00am – 10.30am
Warwick Castle has 60 acres of grounds and gardens – and over one thousand trees. The landscape as we see it today has been developed since the mid-18th century, when Francis Greville employed a young Lancelot Brown to landscape the Central Courtyard.
In subsequent decades, further tree planting and expansion of the pleasure grounds continued. During the 1860s, Robert Marnock, the famed designer of Regents Park, provided the design for the formal parterre garden, known today as the Peacock Garden.
Join Matt Halford, who is responsible for the upkeep of the Castle and its grounds, for a tour concentrating on the wonderful variety of veteran and notable trees.
