Warwick Castle: A Tour of its Grounds, Gardens and Veteran Trees
Meet in Stables Car Park
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 the young Lancelot Brown (later known as ‘Capability’ Brown) to landscape the Central Courtyard.
In subsequent decades, further tree planting and expansion of the pleasure grounds followed. During the 1860s, Robert Marnock, the famed designer of Regents Park, provided the design for the formal parterre garden which today is known as the Peacock Garden.
Join Matt Halford, who is responsible for the upkeep of the castle and its grounds, for a tour highlighting the wonderful variety of the Castle’s veteran and notable trees.
