Bath is located a short car trip from countless historic and beautiful gardens.

If you’re looking to tour gardens from Bath then you’re in for a treat, with many world-famous gardens only a short car trip away. However long you have, and whatever the season we’ll be able to recommend the perfect tour for you.

Stourhead gardens are beautiful all year round, but in autumn it’s absolutely stunning. The gardens are set around a lake, they’re strewn with monuments and historically inspired buildings. You can hire mobility scooters to see the gardens. Stourhead is perfectly located for a private Salisbury and Stonehenge tour from Bath.

Forde Abbey stands on the edge of Dorset, the abbey was converted in a private house and its gardens are grade II listed for their historical importance. The tea room serves brilliant food, much of which is sourced from their own kitchen garden. A visit to Forde Abbey could easily be combined with a Glastonbury tour from Bath by car.

Hidcote Manor Garden is one of the most important Arts and Crafts gardens in England. Known for its individually crafted spaces or ‘rooms’ each with different themes. A car tour from Bath to Hidcote will pass through the Cotswolds offering a journey that is a destination in its own right.

The Cothay Manor gardens surround the striking medieval manor house. The gardens are regular award winners and cover stars. A trip to Cothay Manor gardens could form part of a Glastonbury private car tour from Bath.

These are just some of the highlights; there are plenty more historic gardens that can be easily toured from Bath.
