The area is famous for its Wensleydale cheese, quintessential buttercup meadows and iconic drystone walls – all of which are authentically recreated in London to showcase Yorkshire’s beauty to the world.

The walls are crafted from genuine Yorkshire stone on loan from the Bolton Estate which will be returned there after the show. The garden also features woodland, lush pastures, varied plants and flowers, a cultivated cottage garden, and a tumbling beck with dramatic fast flowing water.
