The best spring gardens near Bristol and Bath

There's beauty to be found in gardens all year round and in spring they're particularly colourful. There is much to see, such as the landscape garden of Prior Park, the Victorian splendor of Tyntesfield near Bristol and a chance to see the 17th-Century garden at Dyrham Park.
