The spring sun warms more and more, so we decided to make a selection of the most charming gardens in the UK, which must be visited, as by families with young children, and couples in love. Spend Sunday, strolling through the wonderful gardens, breathing the smell of blossoming buds, and do not forget to grab a bite at a local rural pub...

Spend a day in one of these magnificent gardens...

Hampton Court, London

An excellent option for families: if Hampton Court Palace is a classic British garden, then Magic Garden is great for children's entertainment thanks to its slides, fountains, labyrinth and sand, from which you can build castles. The garden is located on 750 acres of land, 60 of which are given for different thematic areas, such as a garden of fountains and a garden of roses.

Stowe, Buckinghamshire

The majestic and extensive garden is popular with visitors for already 300 years. It is a serious competitor to the royal gardens. Modern visitors can enjoy the view of the lake and the forest, paying special attention to the flowerbeds with blue anemone which looks really amazing.

Sherborne Castle, Dorset

Burghley, Lincolnshire

Referring to the XVI century, Burghley House is rightfully considered one of the greatest buildings and gardens of the Elizabethan period. Located on 300 acres of deer park, Burghley House will especially appeal to families with children. The historic Garden of Surprises will keep the smallest members of the family busy for the whole day with its labyrinths, beautiful sculptures, hidden paths and a house completely covered in moss.

Chatsworth, Derbyshire

Created by landscape designer Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, nicknamed "skillful Brown," the XVIII century garden is located on as many as 105 acres of land. It is famous for its 61-meter fountain, Victorian garden and labyrinth, as well as original glass houses and modern sculptures by Joseph Paxton.

You should visit Chatsworth not only for the garden, but also for the castle itself, which since the 1550s was the family property of the Cavendish family and contains an incredible collection of art objects collected in 4000 years.

Wrest Park, Bedfordshire

A distinctive feature of this park can be considered that it reflects 3 centuries of park design and 4 national styles: French, Dutch, Italian and English. After walking around the garden and enjoying the view of blossoming flower beds, forests and a lake, look for less obvious but equally interesting sights of the garden. For example, Bath house with a floor with a pattern of deer bones, as well as a Chinese temple and statues of the park.

Harewood, Yorkshire

Another masterpiece created by Lancelot Brown, Harewood House is the home of 100 acres of perfectly trimmed gardens. Parts of the park are divided into terraces and gardens, dedicated to individual plant species. And for birdwatchers, there is a Garden of birds with penguins, owls, flamingos and parrots.

Weston Park, Staffordshire

Is it possible to consider something more English than a garden complex, where all the walls are made of neatly trimmed bushes? The garden was created in the XVIII century, but here in a beautiful condition sculptures, labyrinths and amazing flower meadow preserved.
