English Gardens

Planning a trip to England soon? Traveling can be very relaxing if you go to the right places. Have you ever wanted to walk into an enchanted garden and just breath some fresh air? We all need time to forget about everything and just enjoy the beauty around us. Ever since I was little, my mom would take my twin sister and I to some of the most beautiful gardens. She would let us run around and play and we both felt like we were in our own secret and magical place. Now that we travel more, we have discovered more gardens that we absolutely love. Here are some famous gardens that are definitely worth visiting:

Biddulph Grange Gardens, Staffordshire

One of Britain’s most exciting and unusual Victorian gardens, visitors to Biddulph are taken on a miniature tour of the world. A walk round Biddulph involves passing through gardens inspired by China, Egypt and a Scottish glen.

Bodnant, Conwy

One of the world’s most spectacular gardens, Bodnant is situated above the River Conwy with stunning views across Snowdonia. Begun in 1875, Bodnant features huge Italianate terraces and formal lawns on its upper level, with wooded valley, stream and wild garden below.

Hidcote Manor Garden, Gloucestershire

The garden was divided into a series of compartments and each ‘room’ filled with an inspired and informal arrangement of plants around a theme: the White Garden, the Purple Border, the Rose Garden, the Herb Garden, the Lime Walk and the Cottage Garden.

Stourhead, Wiltshire

Stourhead’s ‘natural’ landscape surrounds a large artificial lake. Classical temples overlook and reflect in the water. The lakeside grotto is inhabited by a nymph and a river god.

Studley Royal Water Garden, North Yorkshire

Studley is the least-altered Georgian garden in England. Its elegant ornamental lakes, avenues, temples and cascades provide a succession of unforgettable vistas in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

  1. I so enjoyed perusing your lovely blog. I’m a tried and true gardening junkie so it was wonderful to see the lovely photographs of the English gardens! I only have a tiny front yard flower garden, but I try to emulate a little bit of English style!

    • Thank you so much! I love gardens! I also try to make my garden have an elegant English style! There so much we can do to make it look so nice. I went to buy some rocks and I must say that adding a few rocks does make it look nicer πŸ™‚
