The Italian Garden

The Italian garden is situated in front of the private part of Blenheim Palace and not open to the public.

The garden enjoys a delightful, sheltered position, bordered on two sides by the Orangery and the East Front. Despite its name, the Italian Garden would not look out of place at a French chateau. With its precise, evergreen topiary, patterned beds, luscious orange trees and the scented pink blooms of the rose ‘Caroline Testout’, it is beautiful in all seasons. As a centrepiece it has the stunning, gilded Mermaid Fountain by the American sculptor; Waldo Story.*

      You will have to wait for the next installment (visit) for the veggie patch (walled garden) ;-) We didn’t quite make it there on this occasion as it is at the opposite side of the grounds.

    It seems possible to get a view, however, so I suppose privacy for the family would not be possible, Cherie

    And after all that, it still looks so English to me. :D
