View from the Rose Garden to the Elizabethan tower, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, Kent, Great Britain

Sissinghurst Castle Garden

Definitely a must for gardeners!

Poet and writer Vita Sackville West, together with her husband Harold Nicholson transformed the ruins of the Tudor Castle to create the famous garden we know today. But did you know Elizabeth I once stayed at the castle, or that it was a prison?

Wander through the garden rooms, each with its own theme and story to tell, and amble in the meadow alongside the moat. Climb to the top of the tower:  You’ll be rewarded  when you look down on the map-like areas of the garden. Amble through the Elizabethan barn to enjoy fantastic view of The Weald; the nearby pigs’ shed has become a well-stocked gift shop and the collection of oast-houses often holds an interesting exhibition.
