Upton House and Gardens image

Stepping inside the house you'll find yourself surrounded by Lord Bearsted’s internationally important art and porcelain collections, with works by artists such as Canaletto, Stubbs and Hogarth. Delve deeper and you’ll discover what life was like at Upton in 1938 – read about Lord Bearsted’s passion for art as well as his support for the local community and Jewish causes in Europe.

Lady Bearsted was passionate about developing the gardens with designer Kitty Lloyd Jones. The sweeping lawn gives way to a series of terraces and herbaceous borders leading to a mirror pool. There is a kitchen garden, a tranquil bog garden, spring bulb displays and National Collection of Aster, flowering in late September.
