Scampston Walled Garden is a strikingly beautiful contemporary garden, quite unlike any other. Set within the 18th century walls of the original kitchen garden for Scampston Hall, today the Walled Garden has an exciting and unashamedly modern feel, complementing the adjacent 'Capability' Brown park.
At Scampston Walled Garden, visitors are invited to explore the various ‘garden rooms’. Designed by renowned Dutch plantsman, Piet Oudolf, the garden features modern, perennial meadow planting alongside more traditional areas. Oudolf has created dramatic contrast in the garden which will delight both the seasoned gardener and the casual day visitor.
Sitting within the Walled Garden, the newly restored Victorian Conservatory, now the Heritage & Learning Centre, houses both temporary and permanent exhibitions. Visitors can learn about the history of the garden, and the people that lived and worked at Scampston in the past. The Conservatory also runs a number of courses, workshops, lectures and children’s events throughout the year. Please see the website for more details.
Scampston Hall, a glorious Regency-style Hall is available to view by guided tour during summer months. The Hall, which has been in the same family for centuries, is brimming with interesting paintings and stories. House tours are both lively and informative.
Visitors are also invited to explore the Capability Brown parkland at Scampston. Trails through the park allow visitors to take in the beautiful vistas. Key features of the park include a Palladian Bridge, a rock garden, a newly restored Ice House and beautiful lakes.
Scampston continues to improve its offer for families. There is a fairy trail and a small natural playground for children, as well as some family-friendly giant board games. There are also a number of seasonal children’s trails and craft events. More information is available on the website.
The Garden Café at Scampston offers delicious home-made cream teas and lunches. There is also a small plant nursery and gift sales area.
