Polesden Lacey is one of the great English country houses, with rolling lawns, extensive parkland, beautiful vistas and (of course) double herbaceous borders and rose gardens. This year marks 75 years since Polesden Lacey was bequeathed to the National Trust by Mrs Greville.

To celebrate the Trust has developed a new rose with partners Peter Beales Roses to mark the occasion; you can see the new variety in all its splendour in the Ladies Garden at Polesden Lacey.

With over 2000 roses of 35 different varieties, as well as late summer borders including Helenium, Rudbekia and Hydrangea, the September borders are not to be missed. Just as well then that the estate is opening is grounds to everyone for FREE (not just National Trust members) on Saturday September 9th from 10am – 5pm as part of Heritage Open Days.

Feel free to roam and explore the estate, visit the cafe or browse the shop – all will be open during the event. For more information see The National Trust website.

There is no need to book, but normal car parking fees do apply. Unfortunately dogs are not welcome at this event.
