Summary

A remarkably-designed landscape and art museum.

About Oudolf Field

The landscape at Oudolf Field is a remarkable testament to the garden design skills of Piet Oudolf - a master of the craft who hails from the Netherlands. He has brought his flowing, epic and naturalistic style to this large site with a perennial meadow which is situated behind the art gallery - the centrepiece of the site. The resulting impression is spectacular, with a garden that changes dramatically through the seasons and softens the hard landscaping of its surroundings.
Free to enter, visitors will also enjoy the contemporary art on display in the Radić Pavilion, which was designed by a Chilean architect and brings extra glamour to this corner of the Somerset countryside. The building was initially unveilled at the Serpentine Gallery, before being installed here in Bruton.
