PGG visit to Parham House & Gardens and Arundel Castle & Gardens

Parham House & Gardens

The house and estate go back as far as the fourteenth century located deep in the Sussex countryside, whereas the pleasure gardens and lakes were established much later. The gardens are well sheltered by the South Downs and has been an instant appeal to thousands of visitors each year from across the South East of England.

The gardens consist of landscaped grounds hosting many heritage specimen trees under planted with thousands of spring flowering bulbs, a four acre walled garden with stunning herbaceous borders, glasshouses and fruit and vegetable garden, all maintained organically and to an amazing standard.

Arundel Castle & Gardens

Over the years the gardens have been transformed to enhance the beautiful castle grounds, creating areas of outstanding beauty. Martin Duncan and his team have continued that theme into an internationally well-known garden.he stunning and inspirational walled garden consists of themed horticultural splendours and its sheltered location has made it possible for many of the tender perennials to remain in the ground throughout the winter. The plantings are almost tropical like appearance, decorating the Collector Earl’s Garden into an amazing summer spectacle.

Set in a very delightful and beautiful location with the River Arun running through Arundel, well known for its castle.
