Explore the magical Claremont Landscape Garden

Playing outside the Thatched Cottage at Claremont Landscape Garden, Surrey

Once a dukes’ retreat and a playground for princesses, 18th-century Claremont has long been a tranquil escape from everyday life.

This history makes a visit to the gardens something to remember. ‘There's something extra special about letting your kids play where princesses once did,’ says Melissa, a visitor to Claremont.

When you check in at the kiosk make sure to ask for a children's map, so that little princes and princesses can lead the way through the garden. Don’t miss the thatched cottage, full of fun and games, and the children’s play area.
