Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden

The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden has been exhibiting contemporary sculpture in a magical setting for 35 years. Nestled in a woodland valley with ponds and a large stream, an ever-changing collection of sculpture is thoughtfully presented through the landscaped gardens.

Where is Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden located?

The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden is located in the outskirts of the village of Ockley, in the picturesque Surrey Hills. Follow signs for the neighbouring golf course 'Gatton Manor', and you're sure to find the Sculpture Garden. There are a number of excellent pubs in the surrounding villages, as well as fantastic farmshops to pick up supplies.

What style of garden is Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden?

Don't expect floral borders, riots of summer colour and neat beds surrounding the 15th century Surrey cottage at the heart of The Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden - because that is not owner and renowned landscape designer Anthony Paul's style. Focusing on dramatic forms, strong architectural shapes and infinite shades of green, Paul uses a bold yet limited palette of plants to fill his stunning water garden. Enormous Gunnera Manicata, swathes of Petasites Japonicus, bamboo hedges - not to mention the stunning ancient towering oaks, cluster of acers and other wonderful trees that inhabit the valley.

What can guests enjoy at Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden?

Calmness, tranquility, and an atmosphere of mystery and adventure awaits visitors to the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden. With over 160 sculptures on display throughout the summer season, from more than 50 artists, visitors are guided through the twists and turns of the intimate pathways and across the wide open lawns on a journey of discovery with the help of a printed guide. Each sculpture is carefully placed to form a relationship with its surroundings - the curation is fundamental to what makes this garden so unique.
