This garden is cute and it has lots of different shapes of grass & trees! It just made me think of the movie Edward Scissorhands. My friends and I had so much fun here, and we all enjoyed our visit very much.

Thank you for your very kind review of Levens Hall. Unfortunately, I think you are probably confusing us with The Villa at Levens as we are a country house and we don't host weddings. If you are ever in the area again then perhaps come...More

Fabulous gardens, medium but perfectly formed. Love the grandness, the fish pond, the atmosphere, the view from the haha. It was quiet when I visited and felt very serene with time to ponder, I meandered through the beech hedge, marvelled at the topiary, the croquet...More

The giant historic gardens at Levens Hall are an absolute must see - and if you're feeling hungry we can thoroughly recommend the home cooked fare on offer in the Bellingham Buttery Tea Room. The Potting Shed gift shop also sells a great range of...More

We came on a late afternoon with rain threatening. Still had a brilliant time. Can't imagine how nice it would have been with more time and better weather.

I saw a comment from another reviewer that said she expected the topiary to go on for miles. While I know that is an exaggeration, I, too, thought the topiary would be more extensive. What was there, however, was definitely worth the price of admission....More

You can buy tickets anytime you like online. They don't need to be printed and so showing them to our ticket kiosk attendant on your phone is totally fine. We look forward to seeing you soon
