Fabulous Gardens To Visit During Lockdown

We know that that lockdown is a bit of a bummer, you can’t meet up with friends, go shopping or take a trip down to the pub. So, why not take a journey with us through the modern wizardry of computers to see some of the worlds most exceptional gardens. Maybe get some inspiration for your own!

Hyde Hall Gardens, Essex

The Royal Horticultural Society is responsible for looking after some of Great Britain’s most exquisite gardens. They also do a stellar job at helping people to improve their gardens, more on that later!

You can take a virtual stroll around their ponds and parks with their website’s exploration gallery. Enjoy the calming and tranquil atmosphere from the comfort of your own home. Virtual exploration feels a little strange at first but then freeing; you can go anywhere, see anything. The whole world is at your fingertips!

Monet’s Garden, Giverny

Famous painter and equally talented garden designer Claude Monet’s garden has been open to visitors since 1980. Between April and November every year, if you find yourself in the area, you can visit the birthplace of many of the most illustrious pieces of artwork of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Kew Gardens, London

Kew Gardens is at the end of the district line in London and was first designed in 1299; after a long and complicated history, it’s now open to the public. In addition to a fantastic garden, they have a research department aiding conservation and scientific progress. Nowhere is better to show the science and art of botany in one place.
