Explore world-famous gardens at Levens Hall

Kendal, Cumbria

Discover the Elizabethan house and world-famous gardens, a place of discovery, a place to drink in its rich history, a place that all ages enjoy.

The gardens of Levens Hall are unique, a surreal and fantastic living sculpture gallery. The finest, oldest and most extensive topiary garden in the world, there are over 100 pieces each clipped to an unusual and individual design.

Most pieces of topiary here are nameless abstract or geometric shapes but look out for the chess pieces, King and Queen, the Judges Wig, the Howard Lion, the Great Umbrellas, Queen Elizabeth and her Maids of Honour, a Jug of Morocco Ale and four Peacocks. All of which are waiting for you to discover.

Finish your day with tea and cakes in the buttery or taste the Morocco Ale, brewed exclusively for Levens Hall.
