Stourhead Gardens are famed for their beauty. Landscaped in the 18th century with the lake, formed by damming a small stream, as the focal point this remarkable garden is a must. Although rhododendron displays in spring, azaleas in early summer and the spectacular autumn colours of the woodland surrounding the lake are the highlights of the year the garden is well worth visiting at any time.

The gardens are full of interest with numerous temples, follies and grottoes placed around the grounds. The house, also open to the public, is well worth visiting and this magnificent Palladian mansion contains a rich collection of heirlooms, furniture and paintings.
