Guided Tour of Buscot Park Gardens

Peto Water Garden, Buscot

On 15th August 2018 members of the Berkshire Gardens Trust and their guests enjoyed a guided tour by the curator, Roger Vlitos, around the National Trust gardens at Buscot Park, exploring the extensive pleasure gardens that surround the late eighteenth-century house. To the west of the house, the mellow red-brick walls of the original kitchen garden now shelter the Four Seasons garden. To the east, woodland walks lead to one of Britain’s finest water gardens, an unusual marriage of Italianate formality with an English parkland landscape. From the south front of the house, the carriage drive sweeps away to the south east, down through mature woodland. From the north front of the house, the views take in the Little Lake and the Thames plain beyond.
