Sheffield Park´s magnificent, informal landscape garden was laid out in the 18th century by Capability Brown and further developed in the early years of the 20th century by its owner Arthur G Soames. The original four lakes form the centrepiece. There are dramatic shows of daffodils and bluebells in spring, and the rhododendrons, Ghent azaleas and the stream garden are spectacular in early summer. Autumn brings stunning colours from the many rare trees, particularly the tupelos, and shrubs. Winter walks can be enjoyed in this garden for all seasons. There is a special events programme throughout the year including an open-air concert.
Sheffield Park Garden is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"This Capability Brown masterpiece is one of the most photographed autumn gardens in Britain, and it’s easy to see why. The stunning colours of the Japanese maples, oaks, beech, swamp cypresses and birches are mirrored in the park’s five lakes, giving a double hit of colour. On a blue-skied autumn day there’s no place like it."
"Sheffield Park is known for its fine collection of trees and shrubs, many of which give a dazzling display of colour in spring. Pink and white dogwoods vie with rhododendrons and azaleas of every hue, from electric blue to bronze; there’s also veritable sea of bluebells. The perfect place for your first picnic of the year."
