Shortly after Anglo American purchased Vergelegen in 1987, a team was commissioned to restore the Vergelegen gardens and grounds in the historic core of the Estate.  The layered historicism approach implemented in restoring the buildings and furnishings, reflecting the best from all the historic periods of the past 300 years, was also adopted in the gardens and a theme of generous and intimate garden areas developed, contrasting the simple with the bold and the formal with the informal.

No matter what time of the year you visit Vergelegen, there's always something interesting to see and visitors will have the opportunity to meander through 18 unique gardens.
