South West England has the warmest, kindest climate in Britain

The awesome Eden. The magically reclaimed Lost Gardens of Heligan. The sub-tropical flora and fauna of Tresco. The Palladian grandeur at the National Trust’s Stourhead. Dyrham Park’s classic Arts & Crafts style with an array of unusual garden furniture designs showcasing in the grounds. Westonbirt Arboretum. The Royal Horticultural gems of Wilton and Rosemoor. The wild flowers of Dorset’s World Heritage Coast.

South West England has the warmest, kindest climate in Britain, so is it any wonder it boasts the UK’s most varied collection of the most stunning gardens.

Throughout the year, South West England is a magnet for gardening enthusiasts from around the world. From the first snowdrops that carpet gardens and wild woodlands to the golden autumn splendour that lights up the landscape in a spectacular free show for all – they combine to make South West England a living encyclopedia of gardens and forests.
