Visit to Sezincote, Moreton-in-Marsh
Sezincote is a unique and extraordinary house built in 1810 in the Mogul style of Rajasthan with a central dome, minarets, peacock-tail windows, jail-work railings and pavilions. It was the inspiration for The Royal Pavilion at Brighton. A curving Orangery frames the Persian Garden of Paradise with its fountains and canals. The exotic oriental water garden is the achievement of Thomas Daniell, the great painter of Indian architectural scenery and the landscape designer, Humphrey Repton. The estate was purchased in 1795 from the 3rd Earl of Guildford by Colonel John Cockerell when he returned to England from Bengal after serving with The East India Company.
