The Laskett

A uniquely autobiographical garden inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement.

A uniquely autobiographical garden inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement.

Be inspired by The Laskett’s year-round garden that brings a biographical celebration of the arts to the Herefordshire countryside. This remarkable garden that never stands still sets a moving scene for special events, aesthetic tours and the exclusive Laskett picnic.

Sir Roy Strong gifted The Laskett to Perennial in 2021 to help people in horticulture. Created with his late wife Julia Trevelyan Oman, every part has a story to tell of the love of a very happy marriage and the creative landmarks of their lives.
