The Grove is an informal garden in a woodland setting. It contains spring bulbs, a very large collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and a wide range of other flowering shrubs and exotic trees, including varieties of oak, birch, magnolia, prunus, sorbus, malus, kalmia and hydrangea. Particularly colourful in spring, The Grove provides a most attractive walk throughout the season and visitors frequently comment on its peacful atmosphere.

Sculptures In The Grove

We first launched the Arley Sculpture Trail in 2014 and each year it has continued to grow in size and prestige. Artists from around the country take part and their skilled craftsmanship have produced outstanding Trails that engage and delight visitors of all ages.

The artists take inspiration for their sculptures from the beautiful backdrop of The Grove. Using a variety of materials, the artworks range in form, from animals, birds and flowers through to some more abstract work. There have in past years been up to forty sculptures in this stunning woodland garden.

All of the sculptures you see are for sale and the artists also accept commissions for their work.
