Description

In Tunbridge Wells, this richly varied Victorian garden has plenty to offer - boat hire, a children's play area, pond dipping, fishing, a Chalybeate Spring, with all the amenities of a modern park. Dunorlan Park is spacious and elegant with wild grassy slopes and magnificent views across the lake to the Weald, plus meadows and wildlife. The garden was laid out in the 1850s and 1860s by the renowned Victorian gardener, Robert Marnock. Although the mansion no longer exists, the garden is one of the best-preserved examples of Marnock’s work. Attractions also include a water garden, a Grecian Temple, with a number of events including Parkruns, walks and talks and lots more - all just 15 minutes from the town centre.
