One of England's most important gardens, Rousham represents the first phase of English landscape design and remains almost as its designer William Kent (1685–1748) left it. Many of the features that delighted its 18th century visitors are still there for 21st century visitors to enjoy.
Rousham is completely unspoilt and uncommercialised - no tea room and no shop - just glorious gardens to explore at your leisure. Bring a picnic and comfortable shoes and it is yours for the day. Don’t miss the walled garden with its herbaceous borders, small parterre, pigeon house and espalier apple trees. A fine herd of rare Long-Horn cattle are to be seen in the park separated from the visitor only by the sunken haha.
Rousham is also available for wedding receptions and fashion or other photographic shoots.
No children under 15. No dogs.
