Strawberry Hill's 18th-century garden is one of the earliest in the English naturalistic style. With its winding paths, groves of trees and scented plants such as lilacs and honeysuckles 'hanging down in festoons', this beautiful landscape, designed by owner Horace Walpole from 1747, contrasted with the popular styles of the time.
The restoration of the landscape garden continues in 2017 with the recreation of Walpole's Serpentine Walk using many flowering trees and shrubs. Visitors can enjoy a peaceful and colourful landscape, explore beautiful surroundings and admire the unforgettable view of the picturesque castle. The popular café overlooks Walpole's Acacia Grove and the community garden with its beds of herbs and vegetables.
