Until 30 Sept. Buscot Park is home to the Faringdon Collection, which consists of a wealth of antiques and furniture, and includes Burne-Jones's painting The Legend of the Briar Rose, inspired by the fairytale of Sleeping Beauty.
A late 18th-century house, Buscot Park is famed for its gardens which are surrounded by mature woodlands.
The Four Seasons walled garden was created by the present Lord Faringdon while the Water Garden, one of Britain's finest, was designed by Harold Peto.
The mixture of Italianate gardens and English parkland, combined with sweeping views of the Thames plain, make Buscot Park well worth a visit.
Located in the Oxfordshire countryside, the house and gardens are open during certain weekdays and on alternate weekends so it is advisable to check the website before visiting, for directions and opening hours.
