New benches for the gardens of the Palace, the Trianon and Marly

The Estates of Versailles and Marly welcome each year ten million visitors from around the world.

After the success of the 2010 adoption campaign for new benches in the courtyard of the Palace, the Palace of Versailles now proposes the adoption of 36 new wooden benches in the gardens of Versailles along the Grand Canal, along the Etoile Royale and at the Trianon, as well as Marly.


A place to rest while exploring the Gardens

These benches are built according to an existing model previously used in Versailles during the XIXth century.

The benches are 2,30 meters in length and are made of oak. They measure 6 tapered feet, the seat is made of slotted bars and the back of moulded bars. Armrests are also included. They are painted in an English green tone to complement the landscape.
