Bennetts Water Gardens: The 8 acres of gardens here hold National & International Collections of Water Lilies, flowering from late spring through to autumn, creating one of the most outstanding displays of water lilies in Britain with a Monet style Japanese Bridge as the centrepiece.


Grass pathways lead you through the series of ponds and lakes surrounded by wetland plants, native trees, palms, wild plants and flowers. The gardens are a 'Site of Nature Conservation Interest' and home to abundant wildlife. There are scenic places to sit and unwind and shaded woodland walks to explore. The Tropical House contains exotic plants including a cacti collection and a Family Nature Trail keeps young visitors interested.
