About Painshill

Welcome to Painshill

In 1981, Painshill Park Trust, a registered charity was formed to restore the 18th century landscape garden which was originally created by the Honourable Charles Hamilton between 1738 and 1773.

Painshill was granted Grade I listing and in 1998 the rare Europa Nostra Medal was awarded to Painshill for its exemplary restoration.

Over 80,000 visitors a year now visit Painshill. His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, Royal Patron of Painshill Park Trust also visits Painshill to view the on-going restoration of the 18th century landscape and its iconic follies.

Painshill Park Trust is supported by volunteers and in 2011 this dedicated team received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
