The whole place makes a huge impression, With a little imagination, it is not difficult to think about the time when the court was teeming with life.
In my opinion may is a great month for visiting Witley. Flowering rhododendrons the size of a medium tree in countless colors are an unforgettable view. Personally, I’d love to see Witley also in autumn. This is all before me …
Garden was designed by William Andrews Nesfield in the 1850, during the expansion of the entire property. At this time a large conservatory with glass roof was added in the south.
The entire property burned down during just one night in September 1937. The then owner decided not to rebuild the property. It was put up for sale. Unfortunately, court fell into oblivion and was permanently abandoned until the English Heritage foundation took care of it. It is the garden that is now the main reason for visiting this place. A part of the garden, one of the grandest in the Europe, the Perseus and Andromeda fountain, was restored to working order. In the garden you can spend a relaxing day looking at the fountain, which turns on every hour.
