Hammerwood Park was built at the height of the French Revolutionary period in 1792 by Benjamin Latrobe, architect of the White House and Capitol building in Washington, DC, as a temple and park – dedicated to fertility god Dionysus in the context of the agricultural revolution. Hammerwood is one of the earliest Greek Revival buildings in Britain. The venue holds summer concerts and there is wheelchair access to the garden, ground floor and tea room. Open for guided tours at 2pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays and bank holiday Mondays, from June - September. Adults £10, children free.
