Painswick Rococo Garden

Painswick Rococo Garden is an enchanting visitor attraction near Stroud and the only complete example of an 18th century rococo garden in the UK.

Dating back to the 1740s, Painswick Rococo Garden is an impressive historical attraction tucked away in a Cotswold valley on the outskirts of Painswick.

Visitors of all ages can discover a restored 18th century pleasure park with characterful follies, period structures and surprises around every corner. Revered for its spectacular snowdrop grove, it’s truly a garden for all seasons – with springtime daffodils and tulips, fragrant summer roses and dazzling autumn colour to admire.

There’s plenty for young visitors to explore too, with a nature trail, maze and woodland play area, as well as family-friendly events hosted throughout the year. The grounds also welcome well-behaved dogs on short leads.

There’s also a lovely on-site café, serving light lunches, snacks and hot drinks – using ingredients from Rococo Garden’s very own Kitchen Garden, which is abundant in the summer months.
