Explore the world’s oldest topiary garden, designed in the 1690s and adorned with a spectacular array of abstract or geometric shapes, including over 100 ancient box and yew trees. It even celebrates World Topiary Day every May. These remarkable and quirky evergreens, clipped and sculpted over the centuries, are complemented by colourful bedding across the seasons. Beyond the topiary gardens is a rose garden, orchard, bee garden, fountain garden, vegetable borders, giant beech hedges, willow labyrinth and wilderness.


You will also find a hearty selection of food and drinks at Levens Hall and Gardens. The kitchen cafe, if worth a visit in itself! It boasts an ‘estate to plate’ approach, with a seasonally inspired menu. Work up an appetite by wandering round the gardens.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
