Like jewels on a necklace, this series of gardens is laid out on a circular route. Originally created in the 1920s in Arts and Crafts style, they include a formal Italian garden, elegant Japanese garden, wooded valley with winding paths and dramatic waterfalls, and a large rock and water garden. They are home to a diverse collection of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants – over 3,000 different species – for year-round interest.
