Dating back to the mid-17th century, Somerleyton Hall gardens are considered some of the finest in East Anglia.

Set over 12 acres, including glorious parkland, the landscape is slowly being reimagined as a series of interconnected ‘rooms,’ including a sunken white garden, stunning rose garden and the centrepiece Nesfield Parterre to the west of the hall. While a sweeping arboretum has been opened to show off a selection of fine specimen trees, under-planted with rifts of bulbs to delight throughout the seasons.

Somerleyton Hall is also home to one of the finest yew hedge mazes in Britain, planted back in 1846 and the great equatorial sundial, which was restored between 2012 and 2014 by Norfolk’s finest landscape architect and historian, George Carter.
