A brilliant opportunity to enjoy a tour of the fascinating grade 1 Listed Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens by Head Gardener, Franzi Cheeseman.

The Memorial Gardens, opened in 1935 were designed by Edward White a founding member of the Landscape Insititute. While the main purpose of the Memorial Gardens is the interment of cremated remains, it is a cemetery like no other. Set alongside Stoke Park created by Capability Brown and Humphry Repton, the 20 acre memorial gardens contains woodlands, formal planting, pools, fountains, rills, parterres, a rockery and even a wisteria pergola fill the gardens. It was an early and pioneering example of a garden of remembrance. For more information visit their website (opens an external link).
