G A R D E N S & M O R E
Walled Garden We highly recommend you arrive in time to take the short journey in a complimentary bus to the beautiful 18th-century Walled Garden and explore its four contrasting quarters with a glass of pre- performance champagne in hand. The last bus to the garden leaves from the Cricket Pavilion one hour before curtain-up.
Cricket Ground A replica of The Oval, Wormsley s Cricket Ground has been described as the most beautiful in England. The Garsington Restaurant and tea lawn overlook the immaculate pitch and rolling Chiltern Hills beyond.
Opera Shop Discover the Opera Shop situated at the top of the line of picnic tents in the Deer Park. Our unique range, devised for the 2021 Season, includes specially designed silk shawls and scarves, bowties, our annual mug, bespoke Emma Bridgewater tin picnic plates and bowls, opera postcards and much more, all sold exclusively during the festival. Run by our in- house team, all proceeds directly benefit our opera productions.
Champagne Bar Our recommended meeting place, the Champagne Bar is on the lower terrace of our award-winning Opera Pavilion and offers spectacular views over the Deer Park. Wide steps lead to mown pathways by the lake and picnic tents.
Opera Garden A short walk from the Champagne Bar are the stunning flower borders of the Opera Garden. Specially designed for us when we moved to Wormsley, it evokes the fragrant surroundings of our original home at Garsington Manor.
Upper Terrace Climb the stairs from the Champagne Bar and take in the breath-taking panoramic views across the Estate and the enveloping Chiltern Hills. Picnic tables with wooden benches can be reserved for interval dining.
A visit to Garsington on a perfect summer
evening is as good as it gets.
