St Paul's Walden Bury

 
St Paul's Walden Bury, Hitchin, Hertfordshire SG4 8BP. 5 miles south of Hitchin on B651
 
This is a celebrated Grade I listed landscape garden, laid out in the early 18th century, covering about 50 acres. The surrounding St Paul's Walden Bury Estate, with its arable and livestock farm and its ancient woodland, is a traditional country estate set in the heart of the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.     
 
This was the birth place and childhood home of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Her family, the Bowes Lyons, still live here as they have since 1725.
   
The garden can be hired for wedding receptions and other events. There is a licence for Civil Ceremonies in the house or in one of the temples in the garden. See link to Weddings on the left.
