The mansion at Polesden Lacey in spring

Polesden Lacey 

Enjoy a succession of spring blooms in the gardens at Polesden Lacey, from heritage daffodils on the banks, to clematis climbing the walls in the double herbaceous border. Fragrant lilac, perfect peony borders and arresting alliums come into bloom as spring turns to summer. The views from the south lawn are glorious in the spring light and there are plenty of walks to try on the wider estate.

View over the lake from the top of the amphitheatre at Claremont Landscape Garden

Claremont Landscape Garden 

Spot colourful camellias in bloom, along the Camellia Terrace, at Claremont Landscape Garden. Some of which were originally planted by Prince Leopold, husband of Princess Charlotte. Baby wildfowl wobble along the paths and woodpeckers and thrushes can be heard singing noisily throughout the garden. Later, bluebells emerge too in areas of dappled shade. Refresh yourself after your walk with hot and cold takeaway drinks and snacks from the Cube kiosk and watch your little ones blow off some steam in the natural play area Badgers Basecamp.
