Gift an experience with some of history’s greats

Set in private landscaped gardens, the Garden of Heroes and Villains is home to more than 50 life-size, bronze statues of iconic figures. 

Come face-to-face with Muhammed Ali, cross the finish line with Roger Bannister, take front row for The Beatles, join Lawrence of Arabia at full charge on camel-back or take a trip with the Owl & the Pussycat and see the pig with the ring in the end of his nose!

With activities for the whole family, including a yew hedge maze, poetry garden, woodland walks and a collection of over 50 stunning sculptures, not forgetting the refreshments served by our volunteers, it's a unique day out in the Heart of England Forest and makes a perfect gift for friends or family.

Various dates are available with the gift recipients able to choose the one that suits them best. Visit the Garden of Heroes & Villains web page for more information and to watch a video captured at a recent summer event.
