Gardens and Parks
There is certainly something sublime about English gardens and country parks. As a nation we are garden lovers, with more gardens open to the public than anywhere else in the world. Find serenity in an 18th century English landscape garden with lakes, sweeping lawns, an abundance of flowerbeds, and often classical-style temples and monuments. The latter-day addition of a café is a very welcome one. Or get back to nature in one of our treasured country parks with miles of marked woodland paths.
