The breathtaking entrance to the Park is an arboretum ‒ a botanical garden devoted to trees. Across generations, with various landscape improvements, the arboretum has become home to unique plant species from around the world, carefully integrated into the tranquillity of East Yorkshire. The charming collection reflects the beauty of nature in this peaceful corner of the world.
The Original Planting Plans
At the request of Mr. C, the Arboretum plans were thoughtfully crafted by Stephen Bean Associates in December 2007. The design was based on the development of the ‘formal garden’ in Europe like Versailles, Hampton Court, and the baroque splendours of Het Loo.
These plans simply divide the Arboretum into rooms and avenues, each mirroring a corresponding space in the Burton Constable Hall—an 18th-century stately home in East Yorkshire. The intention is to create a subtle nod to the historical charm of Burton Constable Hall, integrating it seamlessly into the Arboretum’s natural setting.
