The Italian Garden

Our beautifully restored formal Italian garden.

Available for exclusive hire the beautiful Grade II listed walled Italian Garden, courtesy of the Roger & Douglas Turner Charitable Trust’s neighbouring Arley Arboretum, provides a stunning option for your wedding day.

The historic Arley Arboretum was established by Earl Mountnorris circa 1800 and is one of the oldest and best Arboreta in the country, steeped in history and featuring at its heart the stunning Italian Garden.

Inspired by the Renaissance gardens of the late 15th century, the Italian Garden features a spectacular fountain with 18ft water jets, formal planted flower beds, magnificent urns, box hedging, colonnades of silver Lime trees and a dovecote complete with white doves.

The pagoda inside the Italian Garden is licensed for civil ceremonies making it a magical location to marry, or to enjoy your drinks reception, with champagne and canapés.
