What style of garden is Longleat Grounds & Gardens?

Lancelot Brown earned the nickname ‘Capability’ as he often told wealthy clients their estates had ‘capability’ for improvement. He worked at Longleat between 1757 and 1762 under the 1st Marquess and completely transformed the park. Brown established rolling lawns, dotted with clumps of trees and a chain of carefully placed lakes. And he didn’t stop there, creating the ‘Great Ha-ha’, the gorgeous Pleasure Walk (an arboretum to the south west of the house which is still much-used) and a new walled kitchen garden.

What can guests enjoy at Longleat Grounds & Gardens?

There are also formal gardens to wander through at your leisure. The first real champion of these was the 1st Viscount Weymouth. He commissioned George London to transform and extend the 14 acre orchard on the east side of the house into an impressive Baroque style garden, filled with canals, parterres, statues and fountains. In the 1730s this garden was refashioned in the new Rococo style – and even housed a menagerie of exotic animals created for the 2nd Viscount.
