Details

With an area of 445 hectares (1,099 acres). Bushy is the second largest of the Royal Parks. Lying to the north of Hampton Court Palace, the park, has a distinctly rural character and is home to around 320 free-roaming deer. The famous Arethusa 'Diana' Fountain forms the centrepiece to the famous Chestnut Avenue. Bushy Park is the 'Sleeping Beauty' of the Royal Parks. It is a truly grand landscape, which mixes formal avenues, statues and gardens with the wild appeal of a country park.
Now open to the public for the very first time. The Upper Lodge Water gardens comprise of a Baroque-style collection of pools, cascades, basins and a canal.
It was created in 1710 for Charles Montagu, 1st Earl of Halifax, the Ranger of Bushy Park who lived at Upper Lodge
