Top 100 Attractions Review

When choosing my gardens and parklands for this new Top 100 Gardens in Britain book it was no mean feat as there are hundreds of sites to chose from all over the British Isles, take Larmer Tree Gardens for instance. Without being pretentious in anyway, the Gardens here at Larmer Tree really do live up to their reputation. What makes Larmer Tree Gardens slightly different from a lot of others around Britain, is that their existence was always meant to be for visitors to take pleasure from and not just the family in residence. Recognised by the English Heritage as a garden of National Importance, this special place would give even the non green fingered of us true inspiration and has done for well over a hundred years. All in all a visit here will not disappoint and with various activities happening throughout the year Larmer Tree offers something for all ages.

Larmer Tree Gardens

Attraction in Wiltshire

Larmer Tree Gardens

The Larmer Tree was one of the first Victorian Pleasure Gardens. Situated on the Dorset/ Wiltshire border, it is an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance and now home to free roaming peacocks and pair of macaws. Wide laurel-hedged rides radiate from the magnificent main lawn and take you to the tranquil woodland beyond. In spring there is a wonderful display of Camellias, and Rhododendrons. In high summer the hydrangea collection makes a striking display of colour, and towering over the ponds we have exceptionally fine and majestic Eucryphias. In autumn, the trees and shrubs, together with the woodland beyond, create a rich tapestry of colour. The Larmer Tree contains a wonderful collection of ornate buildings, with free-flying Macaws and roaming peacocks all retained in an enchanting and tranquil atmosphere.
