Summer gardens in Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire's summer gardens are luxuriant with foliage and bright with blooms. It’s a wonderful time to wander on lush lawns at Hughenden and Waddesdon and soak up the colour on the parterres. Play on the paddock at Canons Ashby or wander in the rolling designed landscape of Stowe or West Wycombe Park.
