No stately home would be without its formal garden, as a place for relaxation and entertainment but also a source of plants used in medicine.
The walled garden reflects the final phase of Basing as a great house in the Jacobean period, 1600-1625. Sadly no contemporary illustration or description survives so a distinguished panel of garden historians have designed this garden following the design principles of the day and based on the Paulet family's heraldic devices and their motto ‘Aymes Loyaulte’ (‘Love Loyalty.’)
Our new museum exhibition focuses on
*the archaeology of Basing House, where people have been digging for 360 years!
*life at Basing in its Tudor and Elizabethan heyday
*the Civil War and the downfall of Basing
