About the garden

Farleys was the home of Roland Penrose and Lee Miller. Roland was a British Surrealist painter, co-founder of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and biographer of Picasso, Man Ray and Miró. Lee Miller was a model, photographer, World War II correspondent and in her later years, a gourmet cook. Roland designed much of the garden as it is seen today. He considered the garden an extension of the house, to the extent that it has been divided into rooms, each with unique planting, aspect and artworks. The family used the garden to produce food, entertain and enjoy meals in. For Lee, it was also a backdrop for a number of her Vogue fashion shoots and photographs of visiting friends.

The garden surrounds Farleys House and Gallery where you can enjoy a picnic, explore the sculpture collection, and also enjoy captivating views of the South Downs.
