The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Scampston Hall & Walled Garden

Set within the walls of the eighteenth-century kitchen garden of Scampston Hall, Scampston Walled Garden is a stunningly beautiful contemporary garden, quite unlike any other. Designed by the renowned Dutch plantsman, Piet Oudolf, the garden is alive with clever contrasts and colour throughout the seasons. Striking naturalistic planting with dramatic grasses and unusual shrubs can be discovered inside numerous garden rooms.

The parkland at Scampston, designed by Capability Brown, provides beautiful walks and glorious views out to the rising Wolds.

Scampston Hall, with its opulent regency interiors, houses an impressive collection of art and antiques. The Hall opens for tours in the early summer. Private tours, outside of the Hall open season, can also be arranged for groups of 15 or more. The Garden Café provides good quality, seasonal and locally-sourced food, using ingredients from the garden. Enjoy a light lunch or a delicious freshly baked scone.

Group visits to Scampston Walled Garden can also be combined with a visit to the more traditional garden of Jackson's Wold, just ten miles from Scampston. The garden is a profusion of colour and scent, and offers a fabulous contrast to the modernity of Scampston.
