About National Trust Hidcote (IGPOTY 16)

Hidcote is one of the country’s most celebrated gardens. Covering an area of 10.5 acres the garden takes visitors on a journey through intimate formal areas revealing a different atmosphere or new vista at every turn.

Major Lawrence Johnston, the creator of Hidcote Garden, was a passionate plantsman and talented garden designer. Using Hidcote as a ‘blank canvas’ Lawrence Johnston designed in phases from 1907 to 1938. He furnished borders with newly discovered plants and exotic rarities gathered during plant hunting expeditions from around the world. In 1948 Lawrence Johnston gifted Hidcote, now a Grade I listed garden, to the National Trust, who continue to care for it for future generations to enjoy.
