One World Garden

To enter the One World Garden you will pass through the Garden Pavilion which houses the start of a rill which meanders its way peacefully through the garden. See specimen plants such as Acer Katsura and Magnolia Grandiflora as well as planting schemes including Gunnera Manicata, Echinacea, Phlox and the recently established Cob Nut Walk. Take a look and see what else you can find.

Serpentine Lake

If you go for a wander around Hylands Estate Parkland, you'll discover the Serpentine Lake. The lake was created as part of Humphry Repton’s landscaping of the Hylands Estate shortly after 1800, and was made to look like a river. It has been recently restored after becoming overgrown with trees and vegetation.

Parkland

Hylands Estate boasts 574 acres of parkland - perfect for picnics and long walks in the summer. Explore the greenery and then take a break in the natural shade under one of the many trees and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

Nearly a quarter of Hylands Estate is covered in woodland which includes a mix of ancient woods and plantations. Explore South Wood, Writtle Wood and Jubilee Wood on your visit - you might even spot some local wildlife as you wander through the Estate.
