Summary

There is a series of art installations around the garden exploring the English preoccupation with garden space.

There has been a house on this site since at least 1336. The name 'Polesden' is Saxon and belonged to the earliest recorded owner Herbert de Polesden, who was selling land here in 1198

Polesden Lacey, a 1400-acre estate, is situated on the North Downs and commands some of the finest views in Surrey.

The Edwardian Garden extends to 30 acres with 10 acres of lawns and elegant grass terraces, including a walled rose garden, summer border and winter displays.
