Description of Garden

The gardens cover some 220 acres situated on the north side of Virginia Water Lake. They are probably the finest woodland gardens in the world. They contain an unrivalled collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, magnolias and countless other spring flowering trees and shrubs.

Fifty acres are devoted to the largest planting of rhododendron species in the world. Several acres of daffodils and a ten acre heather garden provides interest in the winter when the woodland garden is less colourful. In July and August many hundreds of hydrangeas provide a spectacular display. In autumn, Japanese maples, red oaks, cherries, tupelos and sweet gums make the gardens well worth visiting at that time of year also.

History Of Garden

Development of the area began in 1947.
