Gardens
Picture

Surrey has a rich legacy of historic parks and gardens. Many of these were created because of the county's proximity to London. In spite of threats from development, neglect and lack of resources, many still survive.

The following Surrey gardens of national importance are listed on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England compiled by English Heritage. The original Register was compiled in the 1980s but research by Surrey Gardens Trust recorders has led to the inclusion of further properties, including Nonsuch, Ashtead, Gatton, Bagshot, Frimley and Farnham Parks and Sutton Place.

The Surrey Gardens Trust website does not include lists of historic parks and gardens in Surrey other than those that are on the English Heritage Register.  The Trust has, however, contributed its research to the work of other organisations such as Surrey County Council and some district councils.  The Guildford Borough and Reigate & Banstead Borough Councils have published lists of parks and gardens of local interest for their respective areas.  The Surrey Heritage website exploringsurreyspast.org.uk can be searched for information on historic parks and gardens across the county but the fact that a property is not included on the Exploring Surrey’s Past website does not necessarily signify that it is not of importance as this record cannot be regarded as complete because research is ongoing.  It may be that further information is available by contacting Surrey Gardens Trust.  CLICK HERE 

PLEASE NOTE THAT AN ENTRY IN THE REGISTER DOES NOT SIGNIFY A RIGHT OF PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE GARDEN.
