Beautiful Gardens to Visit In The UK This Autumn

Hidcote, Gloucestershire
If you're looking for garden inspiration, you will find it here! This garden is unique because it is arts and crafts inspired and it has specifically designed outdoor spaces 'rooms' that you can explore. It's a Cotswolds must-see, with a maze of narrow paved pathways and secret gardens with plants bursting with colour. Many of the plants that grow here were collected from the designers' plant-hunting trips in different countries.

Powis Castle
Powis Castle is over 300 years old and full of history! These gardens are world-class, you can wander the Italianate terraces blasted from the solid rock and marvel at the spectacular yew hedges, dancing statues and herbaceous borders. With a woodland walk and The Fountain Garden, you'll never struggle for a place to relax. To make it even better, from the hilltop, you'll be able to see the Mid Wales countryside for miles. 
Wentworth Castle, Yorkshire
Wentworth Castle was once described as 'the finest gardens in England' and it is now the only Grade 1 registered landscape in South Yorkshire. The original gardens were designed in the 18th century using geometric patterns. One remaining example is the unusual Union Jack Gardens, which is laid out so that, viewed from above, it combines the crosses of St George and St Andrew to celebrate the Union of Scotland and England. During a visit, you'll want to check out the Victorian Flower Garden and look out for unusual and exotic plants housed in the conservatory.

Chatsworth Garden, Derbyshire
Well-loved for its beautiful water features and sculptures, as well as its pretty Victorian rock garden, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The garden retains many of its original features, including the Canal Pond, the Cascade and the Duke's Greenhouse. There are plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy at Chatsworth too, perhaps taking a walking tour in the gardens or joining a drawing workshop.

Mount Stewart, County Down
This neo-classical is considered one of the most outstanding gardens in the world and is unique and of rare quality, being one of the few late compartmentalized arts and crafts like gardens. 
It is a deeply personal garden and the strong, artistic theme combined with an unrivalled plant collection forms one of the most amazing and popular places to visit in Northern Ireland.
Castle Howard, Yorkshire
With 1,000 acres of parkland to explore, Castle Howard is a haven of peace and tranquility with extensive woodland walks, temples, lakes and fountains. The monumental landscape offers breathtaking views at every turn, taking in the countryside of the Howardian Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
