A garden for all seasons

Arboretum in spring

The gardens of Anglesey Abbey offer an abundance of interest and colour throughout the year.


In spring massed drifts of daffodils flourish throughout the gardens. Rows of tulips stand to attention in the Formal Garden and be sure not to miss the 'sea of tulips' which carpet the beautiful Himalayan Silver Birch Grove in the Winter Garden.

Spring at Anglesey Abbey

With lots to see and do, spring is the perfect time to join us as we welcome the first signs of spring back into the gardens.


Summer brings the magnificent sweeping herbaceous border packed with colour, the heady scent of the Rose Garden, dazzling dahlias, and the natural beauty of over 30 acres of wildflower meadows.


Dahlias provide a dramatic burst of late summer colour right up until the first frosts.

Carpets of cyclamen and rich autumnal colours breakout throughout the gardens. The Pilgrim's Lawn area, the last area of the garden developed by Lord Fairhaven is particularly striking.


The Winter Garden can brighten even the coldest of winter days, the shrubs and trees have been specially selected to provide vivid colour, textures and amazing scent. The Himalyan Silver Birch Grove with their brilliant white stems is not to be missed.

In January and February carpets of winter aconiites and snowdrops, for which Anglesey Abbey is renowned carpet the gardens.
