Wyken Hall Gardens
Formal gardens crammed with topiary, herbs, roses, box, fruit trees -- and meandering peacocks, guinea fowl and chickens -- snuggle up to the Elizabethan manor house, with head-high yew hedges serving as windbreaks, essential in East Anglia, a region renowned for its 'lazy winds'.
