Best English Gardens to Visit
4. Stowe Landscape Gardens
Stowe Landscape Gardens covers 750 acres and includes 40 listed historic monuments and temples. It is considered one of the most important English landscape gardens and the greatest names in English garden design were involved in its creation. Begun in the 1710s by garden designer Charles Bridgeman, architect John Vanbrugh and garden designers William Kent and James Gibbs participated in shaping it. Between 1741 and 1751, Lancelot "Capability" Brown, was head gardener. A visitor attraction from as early as the mid 18th century, it even inspired a poem by Alexander Pope.
5. Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden
Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden together make up one of North Yorkshire's most rewarding visitor attractions. The nearly 900-year-old Cistercian abbey is Britain's largest monastic ruin and Yorkshire's only UNESCO World Heritage site. Studley Royal Water Garden was the life's work of one man, John Aislabie who, after being expelled from Parliament, devoted his last 21 years to creating it. This English garden and the ruins were joined when Aislabie's son bought the monastery to create a picturesque "folly" for the gardens.
6. Nymans Garden
Nymans Garden in West Sussex is known for its collection of rare plants and its many surprises and delights. One of the first English gardens to be bequeathed to the National Trust in the 1950s, it was created and sustained by three generations of the Messel family, including the famous theatrical designer and rival to Cecil Beaton,Oliver Messel. The design sensibility and talents displayed in this colorful garden, seem to run in the family. Messel's nephew is photographer Lord Snowdon, once the Queen's brother-in-law, and his grand nephew is furniture designer Viscount Linley, Princess Margaret's son.
7. Trelissick Garden, Cornwall
At this unusual National Trust managed garden in Feock, Cornwall, tender subtropical plants thrive in sheltered glades, cedars and cypress trees tower over immaculate lawns and that otherwise everyday plant, the hydrangea, is cultivated here in some of its rarest varieties. Located at the head of the Fal Estuary, the tiered garden takes full advantage of stunning views of Falmouth Harbor and the wide waterway known as the Carrick Road.
