Lonely Planet review

Sissinghurst Castle Garden is one of the most famous 20th-century gardens in the world, legendary among writers and the green-fingered. The creation of poet Vita Sackville-West and husband Harold Nicolson, it innovatively grouped similarly coloured plants to create 10 distinct garden ‘rooms’. The famous White Garden , with its shades of white, grey and green, was a source of inspiration for Sackville-West as she gazed upon it from her study, also open to visitors.
