About the garden

Owned by
National Trust

Begun in 1926, the grounds at Anglesey Abbey are some of the grandest created in England during the 20th century, with majestic avenues and 35 acres of fine turf. Visit Anglesey Abbey when the horse-chestnuts are out and orchids glow among cowslips in the wildflower meadows. Large formal gardens, carved out of the flat site by yew hedges, house the 1st Lord Fairhaven's collection of classical and renaissance sculpture.

Each season offers a different highlight, from snowdrops in January and February, spring bulbs including magnificent displays of hyacinths in the Formal Garden and tulips in the Himalayan Silver Birch Grove. In summer there's the sweeping Herbaceous Border and English Rose Garden, while dahlias provide a burst of late-summer colour. The Winter Garden, planted with trees and shrubs chosen for their vivid stems, textures and scents, will brighten up the coldest of winter days.
