Painswick Rococo Garden
Painswick Rococo Garden information
Lonely Planet review
Just a mile north of town, the ostentatious Painswick Rococo Garden is the area’s biggest attraction and the only garden of its type in England, designed by Benjamin Hyett in the 1740s and now restored to its former glory. Winding paths soften the otherwise strict geometrical precision, bringing visitors around the central vegetable garden to the many Gothic follies dotted in the grounds. There’s also a children’s nature trail and maze.
