UK Parks & Gardens
Stately homes depend very much upon their surroundings to expand their interest to visitors. After all, gardening is a national preoccupation. Some of the finest parks and gardens in the world are to be found in company with British stately homes. Others like the great arboretums and public parks and gardens are independent attractions in their own right.
Gardening, on whatever scale, gives tremendous scope for personal expression and the great gardeners of all time have had really only one problem which is to combine their own expertise with the aspirations of their clients. The results, invariably delightful, await your attention and enjoyment.
The success of the National Gardens Scheme, which raises around £2.5M annually for charity, speaks for itself.
