Rose Gardens

rose gardens

From their beginnings in the Eastern Mediterranean around 4000 years ago to Gardens everywhere - the Rose is one of our most popular plants.

From around 8 June there will be great displays of roses in Gardens across Britain although the season could be a week or two earlier.

If you want to know where to see roses this page is just for you.

You will find old fashioned scented roses, rambling roses and modern roses in borders, along trellises and in special gardens. We feature some of the best gardens to see them - just click on the link to obtain the details. One of our favourite rose gardens is at Mottisfont Abbey. If you time it right your trip will be just unforgettable. Check out the special evening openings in June. Why not take a break - we suggest places to stay nearby and even give guest reviews so that you can be confident when booking your accommodation.
