Levens Hall & Gardens
Once a stark, imposing Pele Tower building c1250-1300, Levens Hall has grown into an impressive Elizabethan house with spectacular interiors and fine collections of furniture, clocks and paintings.
The Hall has an intriguing history and fascinating links to the Duke of Wellington.
The beautiful 10 acre garden, designed in the 1690s by Monsieur Guillaume Beaumont, gardener to King James II and Colonel James Grahme, retains many original features including the world's oldest topiary gardens and the first ha-ha recorded in Britain. With over 100 ancient box and yew trees sculpted into abstract or geometric shapes, the garden is a remarkable place to explore.
Levens Deer Park, situated just across the road from Levens Hall, offers beautiful and timeless scenery - a haven for wildlife including black fallow deer, kingfishers and a herd of rare breed Bagot goats.
Suitable for visitors of all ages, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and a great day out.
