A must stop for all GOT fans. This is a very enchanting path of 18th century beech trees. In 2016, there was a big storm that destroyed the area and left a big gap in the middle of the path. The wood from the fallen...More

Quietly, majestically, beautiful. Pretty difficult to get a photo without people in the shot, just takes time.

The hedges are beautiful. If you want to take pictures, go at dawn or dusk as there are less people there

Beautiful stretch of road between an archway of trees planted by Henry VIII. If you're a Game of Thrones fan, or just a fan of natural beauty, you'll want to see this.

An amazing grove of beech intertwined overhead creating an atmospheric tunnel and setting a mood. Ideal place for photography, particularly black and white photos.

The local council has been very poor in this regard. Legally you cannot drive along the road, however there is nothing to physically stop you. At one end there is a very small car park, at the other end nothing, though... More
