I love topiary and if I had a garden I would definitely have a lot of it.

This is Levens Hall in Cumbria, which apparently has one of the best topiary gardens in England and dates from the seventeenth century. I'd have a peacock, a crown like above

and perhaps even some elephants! This modern topiary art was created by Steve Manning

and Owlpen Manor in Gloucestershire. For a more complete list of where to visit in England click here
