Gardenvisit Editorial

Houghton Hall was the residence of Britain's de facto first Prime Minister, Robert Walpole (1676-1745). The deer park was redesigned by Charles Bridgeman in the 18th century. The former kitchen garden has been turned into a memorial to the grandmother of the current Lord Cholmondeley. There is an Italian Garden, Rose Garden, Laburnum Garden and Pool Garden (which you can see if you zoom in on the satellite image on the location map below).

Address - King's Lynn, Norfolk, England, PE31 6UE

    Impact of walled garden undermined by shocking number of weeds including bindweed and other weeds 2-3 foot high.

    The walled garden is superb, one of the best I've visited. It has been divided into sections and feels like a series of outdoor rooms.

    The parkland is undoubtedly attractive but it doesn't feel "inviting" as say nearby Holkham does.

    This is a lovely walled garden not constrained by history or 'interpretation'. A garden that has the atmosphere of a well loved sitting room. Some very personal influences, which help to give character and a sense of belonging. Well maintained with knowledgable staff.
