REVIEWS


  • I’ve visited the Gibberd Garden many times and every time it makes me feel like a kid. Much of its planting is green, which sets a tranquil scene. It is cleverly laid out: divided up into rooms, most of them home to interesting pieces of sculpture that increase the sense of exploration and discovery as you move through.

    JOE SWIFT
    THE GUARDIAN: THE 10 BEST GARDENS TO VISIT THIS SUMMER
  • The Gibberd Garden is a national treasure.

    DAILY EXPRESS
  • Architect Sir Frederick Gibberd's ambitious sculpture garden ought not to be missed, especially as it is at a peak with excellent horticulture complementing the 90 or so sculptures and episodes that adorn this site. Well worth going out of your way for.

    TIM RICHARDSON
    DAILY TELEGRAPH: TEN WELL-KEPT SECRETS TO VISIT
  • It is a wonderful garden ... an inspiration to the present generation of young gardeners.

    THE TIMES
  • Gibberd's Garden has all the sureness of a latter-day Brown or Repton's work. Everyone who visits is bewitched by its serene but entertaining beauty.

    SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
  • You know how much thought must have gone into it, yet it looks utterly uncontrived: true wizardry.
