Created from 1731 onwards, these magnificent gardens are set across 47 acres, blending formal design with natural beauty. They include sweeping terraces, statues, formal plantings, towering trees, lakes, secret hollows and rambling walks. In the 100-year-old Japanese garden you can follow winding paths past fragrant azaleas, a pagoda, stream, bridges and maple trees. The Italian garden is set on a series of terraces leading down to the lake and is adorned with statues of gods and mythical creatures.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you
Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.
If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.
Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
