East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden

Book Tickets Online


A feast of formal design, decorative exuberance and brilliant planting. Close to the sea but well protected by windbreaks, making it possible to grow remarkably tender plants. The separate gardens including Tropical Borders, Mediterranean Garden, Sunken Garden, Autumn Borders, Kitchen Garden, Desert Wash and Cornfield, vary strongly in mood. Sculptures, lavishly planted pots and finely detailed walls and gates play their decorative part. Included in best 50 gardens in Europe by the Independent newspaper in July 2003.
