Fulfil your New Year's resolutions at Claremont Landscape Garden

A family walking around the lake at Claremont

Shake away the January blues and kickstart your New Year's resolutions at Claremont. Whatever your goals, these historic royal gardens will keep you inspired the whole year through.

Feel healthier

Claremont's 49 leafy acres are laced with walking routes for all abilities. Take a gentle amble around the level lakeside path, or get your heart pumping with a walk up through the "Wilderness" to the northside hilltop, where you'll find the Camellia Terrace and the eighteenth-century Belvedere Tower. There's so much more to see than in a stuffy gym.

Learn about Britain's history

Did you know Claremont was once a royal residence? The garden was formerly called home by a string of monarchs and dukes, and a favoured retreat of Queen Victoria. Discover Claremont's storied past with guided walks, talks, events and articles.

Learn a new skill

If you're looking to develop new skills this year, why not try gardening in a Grade I listed landscape? We're always looking for volunteers to help us with our vital conservation work.  Join our friendly garden team and you could learn how to coppice a tree, how to build a fence and many more practical skills, discovering what's really involved in caring for an eighteenth-century landscape garden.

Spend more time with the family

Claremont is the perfect venue for a family stroll, with amenities for everyone and a packed programme of events throughout the year. Squeeze in half an hour after school for a walk and a frolic in the playground, take a weekend trip to the Thatched Cottage to play dress-up, or simply come down for a coffee in the cosy tea-room, located outside the pay barrier.

Give time or money to charity

It's thanks to our supporters that we're able to protect special places like Claremont Landscape Garden. There are so many ways you can contribute, from volunteering as a fundraiser to carving pumpkins at Halloween, or simply buying a raffle ticket to support our work (and maybe even bagging £10,000 in the process!). If you'd like to find out more about ways to give, we'd love to hear from you.
