These gardens were created by award-winning gardener, author and lecturer Beth Chatto, who won 10 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, in 10 consecutive years! Beth Chatto is an inspiration to gardeners and has a renowned nursery and stock over 2000 varieties of plants, many propagated from plants in the Gardens.
These gardens, now visited by thousands of people every year, were once the exclusive playground of kings and queens. New ideas and designs arrived with each new era, from the Tudors through to the Victorians.
