About the garden

The Sculpture Park in Churt is a perfect destination for photographers and fans of modern art, with 10 acres of delightful and inspiring sculptures at the heart of the Surrey Hills. It’s a real hidden gem - a tardis-like site that reveals magical woodland landscapes and tranquil reflecting pools beyond the garden gates.

There are an abundance of dramatic photo opportunities scattered throughout the grounds here, and it’s simply down to the visitor to decide which way to capture them. A giant tarantula hanging over the path, a charming folly nestled atop a waterfall and myriad other eclectic pieces from national and international artists which reflect the owners’ love of art and sense of humour.

The sculptures aren’t the only inhabitants of these gardens, and you’ll find plenty of wildlife here, too, with an arboretum and thousands of plants and bulbs putting on a show each year. Two miles of paths lead through woodlands and over heathland, in a valley with spring-fed lakes. If you’re taken by the pieces on display here, many sculptures are available for sale, and for those looking for something at the lower end of the budget, there’s also a great gift shop.

A wonderful place packed full of art. You could definitely spend half a day here. We had a push chair and asked for the accessible route and we were sent on the yellow one which turned out not to be accessible however we managed to lift the pram and transverse our way up and down the steps and windy paths much to our amusement! We did then find the green accessible route and very much enjoyed viewing the large array of sculptures on offer. You are welcome to park at the pub and nip out to it for lunch and come back. We ended our trip at the pub with a lovely cider and a g&t! Worth a visit ,only reason it's not 5 starts is we felt it was slightly more expensive than we felt it was worth as we couldn't access the blue or red trail.

An interesting place to visit for sure, some of the sculptures are very good and some not so great, but overall it’s an interesting experience which I would recommend. The walkway meanders round a route for around 2/3km and it took us about 2 hours to walk it. No coffee or food is available, so you’d need to bring your own.

A marvellous full days experience. Beautiful surroundings. Fantastic range of sculptures to suit all tastes. Place to have a picnic and if not your thing a pub across the road. Couldn't believe how enjoyable it was. Paths aren't easy going but really charming.

Somewhere had wanted to visit for a while and in the main enjoyed the visit, took nearly 3 hours to get round. Reception staff very friendly and information provided very helpful. If I had any criticism it would be less is more. So many sculptures felt bit busy. Few places to stop for own snack/drink but tbf that probably comes with its own issues. Sculptures bit out of my price range but lovely day out and created discussion on art and its subjectivity.

Gentle 2 and a bit hour walk, viewing literally hundreds of different sculptures in a pleasant woodland setting. Definitely worth a visit. Dog friendly but mostly need to book in advance.
