Viking Cruises World of Discovery Garden

Designed by garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes. A couple’s travels across the world with Viking Cruises has inspired this traditional garden.

It incorporates plants that grow in far-flung places, inspired by locations visited, and includes herbs and flowering plants in a soft and romantic colour palette.

A triple-arched three-metre-high wall at the back of the garden is influenced by the triumphal Arch of Constantine in Rome and a vast classical urn adds decoration and an alternative focal point.

Filled containers overflowing with Mediterranean planting contribute to the multi-layered planting, which wraps around a sunken relaxing space.
