The Italian Garden

The Grand Italian Garden design has strength and grandeur brought alive by the sound and movement of water and enhanced by the façade of the Italian Villa, making this a spectacular wedding venue.

Original statuary remains including Bacchus in his Domed Temple, the Wrestlers of Herculaneum and the old Venetian bronze lanterns also provide a taste of Italian history and culture. The planting features formal clipped yews, swags of clematis between the stone columns and colourful seasonal bedding. A small Roman Garden, and the stately Chusan and Dwarf Fan palms of the Palm Court, complete the series of Italian gardens.
