Euston Hall - The Pleasure Grounds                                                       


The jewel in the crown of Euston Estate are the remnants of the 17th Century park overlaid by 18th Century designs.

The Pleasure Grounds were laid out by King Charles II’s courtier,  John Evelyn, who was a celebrated landscape gardener, diarist and an expert on trees. He visited the Estate with Charles II in 1671 and he described the new Euston Hall as "magnificent and commodious . . . splendidly furnished".

His designs for Euston included a grand promenade through the Pleasure Grounds.  Visitors to the Estate can enjoy walking amongst his long yew tree avenues and ancient Lebanese cedars.  

The Hall reopens in summer 2017.  Please see the Visitor Information section for updated information.
