Welcome to Abbey House Gardens, Malmesbury






           Now Open Daily for the 2015 season


With 1300 years of history, the first King of all England buried somewhere in the garden, two saints thrown down the well, and now one of the great gardens of the world. The spirit of the place shines through and could be the best garden visit you ever make.


Where the Cotswold meets the West Country, featured on many TV programmes this truly spectacular 5 acre garden beside the 12th century Abbey Church in the centre of Medieval Malmesbury and straddling the River Avon has brought praise from around the world.


Let our visitors speak for themselves :-

'Unique, Unforgettable, Magical, Paradise, Heaven on Earth', through to ‘This garden alone made my visit to the UK worthwhile’, ‘The loveliest truly English garden on the planet’, ‘A real national treasure for the future’ and from Alan Titchmarsh “The WOW factor is here in abundance!”.


Featuring formal knot gardens, spring bulbs, tulips (third of a million), hostas, laburnum tunnel, colonnade walk, roses (largest collection in the UK), japanese maples, fruit trees, double herbaceous borders, irises, alstroemerias, herb garden, monastic fish ponds.  Woodland and riverside walks with wildlife from water voles, the occasional otter, goldcrests, longtailed tits, treecreepers, kingfishers, woodpeckers to sparrowhawks, buzzards and swans.
