The Rococo Garden, Painswick, GL6 6TH

The country’s sole surviving complete rococo garden

Painswick Rococo Garden was designed in the 1740s as a flamboyant pleasure garden for Benjamin Hyett to entertain his guests.  This was a time when gardens were fashionable theatrical sets, providing a stunning backdrop to decadent garden parties.  Instead of a flower garden, you will happen across a stunning vegetable garden, beautifully-framed views of the surrounding countryside and fanciful garden buildings.  You can lose yourself amongst the lofty trees of our leafy woodland walk and watch friends and family battle to find the centre of our unusual maze.  And afterwards, enjoy delicious homemade cakes or a light lunch in our cosy café.

Grounds open an hour before the performance for picnics. There is a café on site.
