About Escot Historic Garden
Enjoy the natural historical gardens and fantasy woodland which surround the ancestral home of the Kennaway family.

The original gardens were set out by Capability Brown and have been magically brought to life through the skill and imagination of Land artist and television gardener Ivan Hicks.

Escot is a place for people who love Nature - here are paths, trails, vistas, places to picnic, things to enchant and delight, and everywhere beautiful flowers, shrubs and specimen trees.

The Escot maze design features five fantastic hedge-leaping bridges and a dramatic central lookout tower. It’s certainly no pushover. Within the beech rows four hidden switch-gates lie in wait. These can change the pattern of the maze completely and they provide 10 possible levels of difficulty!
