Amazing Sculptures In The Grove

The sculptures, each created by local artists, are made from willow, wood, glass and ceramic and are situated in the stunning backdrop of The Grove at Arley.

Come and take a stroll through the informal gardens of The Grove and enjoy a showcase of the beautiful artwork on display. Hugely successful last year, our Sculpture Exhibition continues to attract a wealth of talented artists who take inspiration for their work from this beautiful woodland garden.


There are pieces to engage and delight visitors of all ages and should you be tempted to purchase a piece for your own garden or want to commission a piece of work from an artist for yourself, then please drop into the Arley Gift Shop for further information.


The Grove is an informal garden in a woodland setting. It contains spring bulbs, a very large collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and a wide range of other flowering shrubs and exotic trees, including varieties of oak, birch, magnolia, prunus, sorbus, malus, kalmia and hydrangea.


The Grove is open daily from 11am and is included in the entry price for the Gardens.
