Claremont Landscape Garden

Attractions, Places2go
National Trust Claremont

There’s plenty of family fun to be had on a visit to Claremont Landscape Garden. From climbing Stoney Hill and exploring the play area and Badger’s Basecamp to simply relaxing by the lake, this historic royal landscape is a great place to spend time together.

Once the playground of royalty, a Grade I-listed garden with lake, created by the great landscape designers of the 18th century.

Steeped in nearly 300 years of history, this eighteenth-century garden is a green oasis in the heart of Surrey within easy reach of London. Previously the countryside retreat of queens and heirs, Claremont has always been somewhere to escape everyday life and enjoy simple outdoor pleasures.

Many of the great names in landscape design history played a part in the creation 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, and in 1866 Queen Victoria herself acquired the estate to save it from development.

Today you can still spot lots of historical features in the garden, including the large turf amphitheatre, serpentine lake, grotto, Camellia Terrace and Belvedere Tower.

Events also run throughout the year (additional charges may apply).
