The world-famous garden at Stourhead 

Perhaps the most beautiful and magical of all of the great landscape gardens, Stourhead is an English 18th-century view of Arcadian paradise. In late spring and early summer the garden is a tranquil place to sit and relax, enjoy a picnic and immerse yourself in 300 years of history.
