Southill Park is a historical listed building in the Palladian style, which was rebuilt and then remodelled in the 18th century.

Sited on a high point within its grounds, the house is surrounded by a landscape park designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in 1777.

It includes extensive ornamental gardens, with mature trees and flowering shrubs, herbaceous borders, a formal rose garden, sunken garden, ponds and a kitchen garden.

A large conservatory houses the tropical collection.

Parking is available.
