Gardens and Parkland

There’s lots to see and do in Belton’s great outdoors. The formal gardens, pleasure grounds and boating lakes provide a charming place for a stroll that is continually changing throughout the seasons. While the parkland is a great place to play ball games or take the dog for a walk, with lots of lovely picnicking spots too.
