About

The Gibberd Garden is listed Grade II and open to the public from April to September, on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

The garden was landscaped and created by Sir Frederick Gibberd, the leading 20th Century architect. His former home, now the Gibberd Rooms can also be visited on Sunday afternoons. Experience the world of these influential 20th century art-lovers and intellectuals in the Gibberd Rooms - conserved as if they had just left – with a little of their art, Sir Frederick’s models and books, and expert volunteer guides on hand.

There is a lively events programme including music, theatre, cream teas and children's activities.

Explore formal terraces, lawns, pools and avenues, then take a romantic stroll through woodland glades to Pincey Brook. You will be fascinated to see the collection of modern sculpture and architectural pieces Sir Frederick and Lady Gibberd acquired over their lifetime as you stroll. Delight the children with animal sculptures, large and small, acres of green space, and the minature moated castle and tree swing which Sir Frederick built for his grandchildren.

Relax in the Barn Tearoom, with delicious cakes and ice-cream, hot and cold drinks - staffed by friendly volunteers who ensure the garden remains open to the public.

“One of the most important post-war gardens in the country….where sculpture and plants complement each other perfectly.” BBC Gardeners’ World
