Abbotsbury Gardens in Dorset

Abbotsbury Gardens, near Weymouth

Superb sub tropical Abbotsbury Gardens set in beautiful coastal location close to Chesil Beach.

The gardens at Abbotsbury are situated in a valley near the chesil Beach and date from 1762. The sheltered position has enabled sub tropical plants to grow among our native species  Formal areas lead to the Valley Garden, a gentle coombe with camellias,

magnolias and rhododendrons in woodland. Asiatic primroses border the the banks of the stream in Spring with bridges and crossing paths. Even in summer the woodland has colour.
There are many fine specimen trees which you would not see growing in this country. These are gardens which you should not miss and one of our favourites.

Each year in October the plants and trees are illuminated in a dazzling display of colours.

Take time to visit the nearby Chesil Beach with its display of wild coastal plants especially good in June/July. Walk westwards along tarmac lane by Chesil Beach Car Park.
