Albury Park

 

 

Albury Park dates back to the 1600's. The current Mansion was built by the 6th Duke of Norfolk, Henry Howard using the architect George Evelyn. The gardens were significantly altered by John Evelyn.

 

In 1891 the estate was acquired by Henry Drummond who employed A W N Pugin to remodel the house. He planted exotic trees within the pleasure gardens. Through the marriage of Drummond's daughter, the estate passed to the Duke of Northumberland.

 

In 1969 the mension and immediate garden was sold for residential apartments. The remaining pleasure grounds, with their Evelyn terraces, alcovers, tunnel, pool and alcoves are now in the ownership of the Albury Estate Trustees.

 

The gardens are open as part of the National Gardens Scheme and are listed as a Grade I garden.
