Coinciding with Bampfylde 300, the celebrations of the tercentenary of Coplestone Warre Bampfylde (1720 - 1791), A Gentleman of Taste is a year-long exhibition presented by Hestercombe Gallery at Hestercombe Gardens, and explores the many themes running through the life and work of Hestercombe's former owner.
Celebrated artist Richard Long’s newly installed artwork Jackdaw Line is set in Hestercombe’s Georgian Landscape Garden. Book your visit now.
Enjoy the gardens until 8pm on the summer evenings with our season of special late openings: explore the landscapes after hours and leave work behind. At our Pizza and Music nights, grab a wood-fired pizza and enjoy some live music!
