Claremont Landscape Garden

About

A garden for all seasons

Steeped in nearly 300 years of history, this eighteen-century garden is a green oasis in the heart of Surrey within easy reach of London. Once a Dukes’ retreat and a playground for princesses, Claremont has always been somewhere to escape everyday life and enjoy simple pleasures with family and friends.

Many of the great names in garden history played a part in the creation and development of the estate. Over the years Sir John Vanbrugh, Charles Bridgeman, William Kent and ‘Capability’ Brown all put their own distinctive stamp on the pleasure grounds, which were part of the foremost royal residence in the country.

Today there are still many unique and unexpected features to discover, including the large turf amphitheatre, serpentine lake, grotto, Camellia Terrace and Belvedere Tower. Look out for the Thatched Cottage, a Victorian refuge filled with fun toys, games, picnic rugs and dressing up clothes.

We always have something special to offer, from our changing seasonal views to our diverse programme of events for the whole family. Our children’s play area is a great place to run off steam, and no visit would be complete without sampling the tempting array of homemade cakes and light lunches in our café.

Whatever your mood or whoever you’re with, make our garden your sanctuary.
