Once an overgrown wasteland, Beth Chatto's Plants & Gardens are today informal gardens. Stroll through grounds that harmonize with the surrounding countryside, and enjoy the tranquility. Find inspiration for your own garden or window box, and then head for the plant nursery, which stocks over 2000 plants, including some unusual specimens. Talk to the staff on hand for gardening information and advice. Before heading home to recreate the look, take a break in the tearoom with a hot drink and homemade cake. Before you head to Colchester, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Colchester trip itinerary planning site, to make sure you see all that Colchester has to offer, including Beth Chatto's Plants & Gardens.

One of the most beautiful gardens I ever visited. Perfect size, variety, facilities and so many nice planting in a beautiful location. Definitely worth a day trip from London.
I have just ,this weekend, had the privilege of holding my 60th Birthday celebrations in this stunning location. Not only are the gardens beautiful and have to be seen to really be appreciated but the help I received with the planning and on the night was wonderful. Full credit must go to the catering team who produced fabulous food and were on hand all evening. Nothing was too much trouble. You really do have a great team. Thank You all very much
