Visitor information

Gardens & maze

The gardens at Somerleyton Hall include a walled garden where you will find ornate iron and glass greenhouses designed by Joseph Paxton, the architect of Crystal Palace; an 80’ pergola with some old wisteria; roses; clematis and vines.  Adjacent to this is one of the finest yew hedge mazes in Britain, designed and planted in 1846 by William Nesfield. - if no mistakes are made the journey to the centre and back is nearly 800 yards, but is usually found to be a lot longer !

here is a collection of some wonderful specimen trees including a Eucalyptus Gunii; monkey puzzle, tulip trees, giant redwood and London Plane.  In front of the Hall - topiary and rose beds and in the tunnel garden you will find our Bygones Museum with a small collection of gardening memorabilia.

Pleasure gardens

The arboreal part of the gardens features rhododendrons, azaleas and a fine collection of specimen trees.
