Basildon ParkLower Basildon, ReadingHistoric House and Park
This impressive Georgian mansion, surrounded by glorious parkland, was lovingly rescued from ruin by Lord and Lady Iliffe in the mid 1950s, when they restored the elegant interior and scoured the country salvaging 18th-century architectural fixtures and fittings. They filled their comfortable new home with fine paintings, fabrics and furniture, which can still be enjoyed by visitors today. There are waymarked trails through the historic parkland and gravel paths around the gardens. Why not visit our 'on location' exhibition and find out what goes on behind the scenes?

Englefield House & GardenEnglefield GreenHistoric House and Garden
The formal garden was laid out in the 17th century and the terraces and stone staircases were built in 1860. The woodland and water garden on the hill above the house was designed and planted in 1936. In 1976 the formal planting and gravel paths were removed from the terrace and a new planting scheme was put in place with the assistance of Lanning Roper. There is a small garden especially created for children where four little statues conceal hidden jets of water. The walled kitchen garden is planted with fruit trees, a large selection of vegetables, herbs, salads, roses, lavender and sweetpeas.
