There are many tranquil spots to sketch including the Kings River Garden, River Plantation and Silver Birch Glade. Even the unappealingly named Bog Garden is worth a visit for the interesting array of water tolerant plants such as irises, giant plantains and skunk cabbages which are prettier than they sound. Nearby and halfway along Chestnut Avenue there is the Diana Fountain sometimes described as Arethusa designed by Inigo Jones. The large statue was commissioned by King Charles I for his wife and moved from Somerset House to Bushy Park in 1713.

Hampton Court Palace is a 20 minute walk away from the Pheasantry Café. The palace was built in the early 1500s as a prestigious home for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey. When he fell from grace Henry VIII acquired it and turned Bushy Park into a deer park for hunting. The park is still home to red and fallow deer and a great deal of other wildlife.

TRAVEL GUIDANCE / DIRECTIONS

There is a car park at the Pheasantry café which must be accessed via the Teddington Gate as opposed to the Hampton Court end of the park. It is no longer possible to drive the full length of Chestnut Ave which runs between the two main gates. The car park does get busy but there is another small car park accessible from the Teddington side a few minutes walk from the café. There is a large car park accessible from the Hampton Court end of the park about 10 minutes walk from the café. The café is about a 20 minute walk from Teddington Station.
