Garden Tour: Tilbury Hall and Denston Hall

June 8th 2022

Join this Garden Museum run garden tour exploring the borders of rural Suffolk and Essex, either side of the River Stour, the day will begin at Denston Hall, a part Tudor, part 18th century house. Here, across from the wide lawns and herbaceous borders there is a beautiful walled garden, originally designed by Mark Rumary and subsequently adjusted by Xa Tollemache.

In the afternoon the tour will drive to the lavish gardens of medieval Tilbury Hall, where the gardens have been radically redesigned by George Carter. A restored walled garden centres on an orangery/camellia house and there are elaborate raised vegetable beds with decorative woodwork embellishments, reminiscent of Villandry. Other notable features include a rustic thatched pavilion in the woods, a stumpery arch, a water garden created from existing fishponds and an avenue of horse chestnuts leading to a yew exedra.
