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

Lovely place to visit with a lot of history. As it is not far for me to get to, I do visit the grounds quite often.

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

I am not sure what I was expecting, the website makes it look as though the topiary goes on for miles, it's not all that large. Not saying it's not impressive, it is a lovely garden, but so expensive to get in. I paid the...More

Dear Natasha Thank you for your review of Levens Hall. It sounds as though you came here with slightly higher expectations than most. You compared us to Arundel Castle and Beaulieu, which are quite frankly well out of our league in terms of what they...More

After visiting the gardens take a walk along the river on the other side of the road. There you will see some of the most amazing trees I have ever seen.

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
