Day trip to the Walled Gardens at Cannington and Hestercombe Gardens

21 May @ 8:45 am - 6:30 pm

Day trip to the Walled Gardens at Cannington and Hestercombe Gardens

Visit two beautiful gardens near Taunton. The trip will start at the Walled Gardens of Cannington, on the grounds of a former medieval priory. There is a mix of classical and contemporary garden design, with Victorian-inspired fernery, a rose walk, a botanical glasshouse containing tropical and semi-arid plants, herbaceous borders and a “blue” garden. Hestercombe covers 50 acres and spans three centuries of garden design: a Georgian landscape garden with its stunning great cascade; a Victorian shrubbery including a yew tunnel; and formal Edwardian gardens designed by Lutyens. Elsewhere, there are ponds, a Dutch garden and impressive orangery, a rose garden, a restored water mill and several follies.
