Author(s): National Trust
In the hands of The National Trust since 1967 Sissinghurst is perhaps the Trusts most iconic garden. From the moment the visitor walks through the gates of the castle into the courtyard it is plain that this is a garden in a league of its own. Climbing roses and trained shrubs adorn the walls and wherever you look, behind every hedge or alongside each wall, there are plants that intrigue and surprise.
The garden is designed in such a way that it gives the impression of being larger than it is. It is not grand, it is intimate and has stood the test of time extremely well. It is one of the most beautiful gardens in Britain.
