Larmer Tree Gardens
Attraction in Wiltshire
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.
