Trip Report English Gardens

Jump to last reply

Over the last couple of years we have been visiting some of the smaller and less well known of the English Gardens. There is information and pictures here:
http://wasleys.org.uk/eleanor/gardens/england/index.html

This includes Painshill Park in Surrey, one of the best examples of an C19th landscaped park which has been carefully restored to its former glory and contains an amazing crystal grotto.

Constable Burton Gardens at the mouth of Wensleydale

and Eggletone Hall Gardens in County Durham.
http://wasleys.org.uk/eleanor/gardens/england/eggleston/index.html
are very attractive gardens. It is possible to scamper round them in 30 minutes but this is a shame as there is so much to enjoy.

Misarden Gardens in Goucestershire is well off the beaten track and another lovely garden.

We also enjoyed the gardens at Hanbury Hall

and Burton Agnes Hall.

If plannning a visit to the hall, it is well worth planning in additional time to enjoy the gardens too.
