The most famous period in English gardens history is the eighteenth century, when the original English landscape gardens were made. Capability Brown created classical landscapes and parkland and his work can still be seen at Chatsworth, Clumber Park, Darley Abbey Park, Blenheim, Burghley, Trentham Gardens and Warwick Castle. Classical English gardens, however, are characteristically on a smaller scale and more filled with sweeping planted beds of herbaceous flowering plants, with roses and flowering shrubs. Hedging is often used to divide, creating gardens that have to be explored to find secluded areas, water features and statuary such as at Chatsworth, Haddon and Calke Abbey. Then there are the plantsmen gardens that contain collections of plants offering a range of less common species, such as at Lea Rhododendron and Azalea gardens which are ablaze in May each year. If gardens are your passion or you just enjoy being there then you will discover a wide range to visit. Enjoy browsing the links to English Gardens below.
