A garden for all seasons

Young family enjoy dahlias in Formal Garden

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

Spring

 
In spring massed drifts of daffodils flourish throughout the gardens, while the heady scent of over 4000 blue and white hyacinths fills the air in the Formal Garden.  Be sure not to miss the 'sea of tulips' which carpet the beautiful Himalayan Silver Birch Grove in the Winter Garden.
 

Summer

 
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.
 

Autumn

 
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.
 

Winter

 
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.
