Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, Abbotsbury

#2 of 16 in Parks in Weymouth
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • amazing gardens, beautiful plants and flowers, peaceful,easy walking for most people, unless steady on your feet, wheelchair friendly ,  more »
  • The weather makes a big difference for a day out like this as if it's wet or cold then it wouldn't be enjoyable at all. The ground on the walks is a little hit and miss so buggys and wheelchair users ...  more »
  • Allow about 1.5 hours to do the Gardens justice. Beautifully laid out with ample info on the plants (although could do with a few more signs on the trees). A meandering path leads you around the slope...  more »

  • Gave 4 stars as the route suggested for disabled wheelchair users was not very friendly due to some steep hills and rocky pathways therefore assistance would be required. Despite this I would highly recommend this subtropical garden if your visiting the area.
  • Perfect every time I have visited. Tea on the terrace is worth the drive out and then there's the gardens...
  • Beautiful, large and very original garden and grounds - informally stuffed with a surprising array of beautiful plants, sculptures, bridges, viewing areas and other features. Don't miss the rope bridge, the kookaburras, the coastal view walk and the lovely restaurant. It is a bit expensive to get in, but it really is worth it, especially if the sun is shining!
  • Excellent subtropical garden set in a sheltered micro climate location. The plants and trees were beautiful.
  • One of my very favourite places. Beautiful gardens & great restaurant.

Where to stay in Weymouth

Weymouth is a popular seaside resort, so book accommodations along the Esplanade, the coastal walkway, early because rooms at the hotels fill up fast. Consider a room or apartment inland for deals and peaceful nights.
