Gardens at Brodsworth Hall

Exterior view of the East front of Brodsworth Hall

The gardens at Brodsworth Hall near Doncaster have been something of a sleeping beauty for the majority of the 20th century. English Heritage took over this mid-Victorian house and garden in 1990 by which time it had slid inexorably into decline. The original structure proved to be an ingenious use of space which worked with the landscape to make the garden feel much bigger than it is, so today visitors can walk through tunnels, over bridges and on the inter-connecting paths experiencing a series of visual surprises at every turn.
