Join Chawton House’s Head Gardener Julia for a guided tour of the Chawton House Gardens and learn about their fascinating history.

From Elizabeth Knight’s completion of the formal garden in the early 18th century to Edward Austen Knight’s construction of the Walled Garden and Montagu Knight’s addition of the Library Terrace, you will discover how Chawton House’s gardens have been altered over the centuries to reflect the fashions of the time.
