Beautiful gardens in Surrey

Great Fosters Hotel Garden

Nestled within 50 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland, Great Fosters is a serene vision of beauty.

Originally designed by W H Romaine Walker and Gilbert Jenkins, the gardens are amongst the finest Arts and Crafts gardens in Europe. Framed on three sides by a Saxon moat, the formal gardens at Great Fosters are both extensive and exceptional. Designed to reflect the intricate beauty of a Persian rug, the knot garden is embellished with fragrant beds of flowers and herbs bordered by manicured hedges and topiary.

At the heart of it all is the Drake sundial which historians suggest may have been donated by Sir Francis Drake and is believed to date back to 1585. Under the leadership of Kim Wilkie, the last few years have seen the grounds extended, restored and enhanced to create the stunning gardens you see today. They now include a grassed amphitheatre, rose garden with sunken lily pond, lake, glasshouse, lawns and secret gardens.

Opening Times 2021 - see latest information by visiting website. The gardens are not open to the public, but the special privilege of any guests dining in the restaurants or residents of the hotel” Private garden tours and bee hive tours are available on request (a charge applies).
