The Salutation Gardens
The Salutation Gardens are a plant lover’s paradise. Designed in 1912 by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, the 3.7 acres are divided into a series of symmetrical “rooms”, each with a different purpose, gathered around a unifying theme.
The effect is one of endlessly unfolding space, with wonderful surprises presented around each corner. The planting style is a dynamic infusion of old and new. Our gardens reveal themselves sequentially through the seasons, and are constantly developing as we see long-term projects and drawing-board concepts come dramatically to life.
Within our gardens sits The Salutation, a charming hotel and restaurant, and a true Lutyens masterpiece. The first 20th Century building to be granted Grade I listing, it is set within the glorious medieval town of Sandwich, nestled on the banks of the River Stour.
