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. Year on year it has grown in size and prestige with artists from around the country taking part. These skilled craftsman produce artwork that engages and delights visitors of all ages, around the beautiful gardens of The Grove.
The artists take inspiration for their sculptures from this stunning backdrop and, from a variety of materials, produce sculptures ranging from animals, birds and flowers through to more abstract work.
The sculptures displayed in The Grove are for sale and the artists accept commissions for their work.
If you are interested in joining the collective of artists who will display their work in The Grove here at Arley Hall during the summer of 2019, please contact [email protected] for further information.
