The Temple of Flora

The Temple of Flora is nestled amongst trees and shrubs; a true representation of the goddess of flowers and spring

Dedicated to the Roman goddess of flowers and spring, this temple was the first garden building erected by Henry Hoare II between 1744 and 1746. Over the doorway the Latin inscription reads ‘Keep away, anyone profane, keep away’. Henry asks you to enter his garden in the right spirit.

The Grotto

The water nymph statue in an alcove of the Grotto, at Stourhead in Wiltshire

Grottos were popular in Italian Renaissance gardens as places of retreat from summer heat. In the summer of 1762 Henry recorded his enjoyment, cooling off here. Stourhead’s Grotto is a circular, domed chamber built to resemble a cave.

The Pantheon

The Pantheon at Stourhead is a focal point in the garden, highlighting its classical influences

Inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, this structure was built in 1753-54. It's the largest garden building at Stourhead. ‘Pantheon’ means a temple sacred to all the gods. The temple is filled with statues of classical deities, including a marble Hercules created by Rysbrack.
