Warwick Castle Garden

A great medieval castle beside the River Avon, with park and garden. Lancelot Brown removed the old parterres and swept the land down from the castle to the river, as he did at Alnwick Castle. Walpole, in 1751, said that 'The view pleased me more than I can express'. In the nineteenth century Robert Marnock added a hexagonal parterre and a rose garden (c1870). Known as the Peacock Garden, it is in front of the conservatory which contains a reproduction of the famous Warwick Vase which used to belong to the family.
