Wentworth Castle Gardens captured the nation's attention on the BBC TV series 'Restoration'.
The estate’s Grade 1 landscape and formal gardens are nationally significant for their extensive monuments, housing some of the earliest gothic follies in the country. The Pleasure Ground displays layers of garden design characteristic of different periods and fashions, including an early 18th century Union Jack garden, a Victorian flower garden and 20th century collections of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias.
In addition, there are 500 acres of parkland, including a deer park and woodland trails, with atmospheric views and majestic follies, such as the splendid Stainborough Castle
