CLIFTON PARK & VYVYAN TERRACE GARDENS


‘Clifton’s most ambitious terrace’



History


This is an example of a garden for a terrace of houses that continues to be maintained by the residents;  several others have passed the upkeep on to Bristol City Council.


Planned in about 1833, it became known as ‘Clifton’s most ambitious terrace’.


Looking at the terrace from the garden one can see the impressive palatial centrepiece with its 8 large Ionic columns.  The end pavilions have attached columns and odd bowed balconies squeezed in.  The 12-bay recesses have panelled stone recesses.


It is named after Sir Richard Vyvyan who was Tory MP for Bristol in 1832.


Clifton Park Vyvyan Terrace Gardens wll be open to GSSG ticket holders on Saturday 10th June 2017 from 11 - 4pm and on Sunday 11th June from 11:00 - 4:00 p.m.


Information on the history of the Gardens and the trees will be available at the gates well as a second hand book stall.




 






There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
