Great British GardensWelcome to the Silver Travel Advisor Great British Gardens Mini Guide, in partnership with Age UK.  We have chosen 15 interesting and beautiful gardens which we know that you will all enjoy, whether you are gardeners or not!  With tea shops, some stunning follies and buildings, beautiful sculptures and water features, each of these gardens has its own unique personality and history.  Not to mention the plants themselves, the intriguing designs and growing conditions.

We have selected gardens that offer access for those with limited mobility and many that will appeal to younger visitors too, with tree houses, mazes and activity days on offer too.  We recommend you check the individual garden’s website to be sure of finding out about all the special events taking place.

    I just love gardens and these are a really good, varied group of them. I'd like a 2 week tour to take them all in, staying at quirky B&Bs on the way. We should make it a challenge and get someone to write up their journey. What do you think Silver Travel Advisor?

    There are some great ideas here. Some gardens we know well, others are new to us and have been added to the 'todo' list.

    The laburnum arch at Bodnat Gardens is beautiful in April/May and the grotto at Painshill Park is amazing. It was being restored when we visited a few years ago ad it was fascinating as we could see how the individual crystals wer eattached to the walls.
