Not without good reason. The gardens were conceived in the 1930s by diplomat Sir Harold Nicolson and his wife, writer Vita Sackville-West. They are of huge importance in English garden design, with Vita’s overflowing, apparently artless planting contained within Harold’s strong architectural framework, producing a series of outdoor ‘rooms’, each with a different feel.

You need only meander through the cool beauty of the White Garden to fall in love. Surrounding it all are acres of gently undulating countryside and dense woodland, perfect for a romantic stroll of your own. Visit in the summer for some incredible floral aromas.
