The Historic Gardens

Boughton’s gardens were laid out to impress the eye, for decades the landscape was carefully shaped and teased by the 1st and 2nd Dukes of Montagu into a series of stunning vistas, tree-lined avenues and bold water features

21st Century Garden - Orpheus

In addition to restoring the historic gardens, a new bold garden feature was installed by the current Duke in 2009, Orpheus.
