Levens Hall Gardens
A Grade I Listed garden dating from 1694, through a combination of circumstance and love the gardens at Levens Hall have survived in their original design. The topiary is some of the oldest in the world and justifiably famous. The garden also incorporates a small orchard of apple trees and medlars, a nuttery and herb garden, a bowling green, a rose garden, herbaceous borders and seasonal bedding.
To celebrate the partnership of Colonel James Grahme and his gardener Guillaume Beaumont, a fountain garden, bordered with pleached limes, was added in 1994, the garden’s 300th anniversary.
With a strong focus on local produce, much sourced from Levens Hall Estate and the gardens themselves, Levens Kitchen is a fully licensed restaurant serving a seasonally inspired menu - morning coffees, brunches, lunches and afternoon teas.
