About English Gardens

England is famous for its gardens, and justly so. Some of these gardens are commercial enterprises and some are purely labours of love. The latter may or may not be open to public viewing, or may have very restricted opening times. For the purposes of this list, I have limited the selected gardens to those open regularly to the public. Many of the finest English gardens gardens are associated with historic houses, making for a doubly enjoyable visit. For an excellent overview of British gardens, visit the web site of the National Gardens Scheme. (highly recommended!)
