Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, Abbotsbury
(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
If you’re visiting the popular Chesil Beach, stop by Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, a walled garden surrounded by woodlands. The garden is separate from the site of the now-demolished house, where its maker, Lord Ilchester, once lived. While the house is interesting to see, the real magic waits for you in nature. The gardens lend a sub-tropical air to the site with palm trees, and the valley garden has some of the most extensive gunnera plantings in England. The gardens boast various exotic plants, many of which were newly discovered species when they were first introduced. Stretch your legs on the pathways of the woodland, or simply take time to learn about the breathtaking flora.

  • Visited for the first time after living in Weymouth for 18 years. What a lovely surprise. A lovely place to walk around, easily accessible for all and very interesting even for non plant etc lovers.

  • Friendly staff, beautiful plants and trees! and nice Restraunt. Great views over chessle beach. Trees take the limelight for me.
  • great place. super for kids Halloween and good value for money...
  • This and the Swannery down the road are well worth a visit.
  • Brilliant subtropical gardens - allow a good couple of hours at least to wander - with pleasant gift shop and delicious, if rather noisy, tearooms. Entry is a little expensive, though; understandable, considering the amount of painstaking maintenance such a garden requires, but expensive nonetheless!
  • Wonderfully maintained. Peaceful. View from top of the Magnolia Walk is well worth the effort.
