Fodor's Review

The lush gardens, 3 miles north of downtown Manteo, are a 10-acre re-creation of 16th-century English gardens, established as an elaborate memorial to the first English colonists. Walk through the brick and wrought-iron entrance to see antique statuary, wildflowers, rose gardens, and a sunken garden, all sponsored by the Garden Club of North Carolina. The gatehouse, designed in the style of a 16th-century orangery, serves as a reception center and gift and plant shop. Many weddings are held in one tranquil garden or another. A smart phone audio tour is available through ONCELL.
