Find out all you need to know about Painshill.

Painshill is a Masterpiece of Garden Design

Created in the 18th century by Charles Hamilton as a living painting, Painshill invites you to walk around a work of art and discover dramatic follies, calming waters and simply stunning views.

Painshill is regarded as one of the foremost and finest examples of the English Landscape Movement. A style of landscape design that has been described, by architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner, as “Britain’s’ greatest contribution to the visual arts”. 

It’s a fantastic day out for all the family that’s full of heritage, beauty, adventure and outdoor fun.

A romantic landscape full of surprises awaits…
