With hay fever season almost over its time to start enjoying summer and the great outdoors. Here are our favourite UK gardens to visit this summer:
Being one of the finest privately owned gardens in Southern England, Compton Acres has over 10 acres of horticultural grounds. From the Japanese Garden to The Italian Garden and the mysterious Wooded Valley, Compton Acres is home to a magnificent collection of trees and plants that would excite any garden enthusiast.
The Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, one of my personal favourites, is definitely a must-visit this summer. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Kew offers over 50,000 species of plants in their botanical collections. Discover rare and endangered plants in the world’s largest Victorian glasshouse.
A traditional early 18th-century garden, displaying years of heritage in its trees and classical architecture, Stourhead Gardens is perfect for the garden fanatics who prefer classical landscapes over flowers. Stourhead is breathtaking at any time of the year but especially as a place to relax and enjoy a picnic in the summer.
Lost Gardens of Heligan
Offering 200 acres of garden history, mystery, and romance, The Lost Gardens of Heligan is one of Cornwall’s finest gardens. A genuine lost secret garden, with a manor dating back to 1200s, the gardens were rediscovered in 1990 and restoration has taken place since. The perfect place to get lost this summer.
Throughout the summer, Kingston Lacy really blooms. Explore the Kitchen Garden, with the vegetable patches and herbaceous borders, alongside the beautiful displays of delightful Dahlias. Take a free guided tour of the gardens and learn about the history and the stories behind each exhibit.
