Sezincote and Batsford Arboretum

| Sezincote and Batsford Arboretum

Sezincote is an exotic early 19th century country house, built for a rich nabob in the oriental style and standing in particularly lovely and interesting gardens. On his return from India Sir Charles Cockerell commissioned his brother S.P. Cockerell to design this synthesis of the neo-classical and the Indian which was the inspiration for Brighton Pavilion. We are suggesting that members bring a picnic lunch to be eaten when we arrive at Batsford, the famous and now fully mature, arboretum created by Lord Dulverton, whose 55 acres of woodlands offer glorious walks beside streams and pools.
