The grounds of Tolethorpe Hall were landscaped in their present form in 1867 and remain much the same except that they where completely overgrown when the property was acquired by the Stamford Shakespeare Company in 1977.

A picnic on the lawns, a stroll around the lawn, pond and flowerbeds and shrubberies all add to the magic of a visit to Rutland Open Air Theatre.
