Claremont Landscape Gardens, Esher
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.
We always have something special to offer, from our changing seasonal views to our diverse programme of events for the whole family. Events run throughout the school holidays.
Our children's play area is a great place for young children to run off steam. For older, adventurous children. Climb the mound to build a den and get in touch with your wild side. Then recharge the batteries from our tempting array of homemade cakes and light lunches in our café. Don't forget to ask about our children's snack packs. Plus there are colouring sheets, crayons and children's books to help you keep the little ones entertained.
Don’t forget to..
- Feed the birds (Buy a bag of bird food from the kiosk for a small donation).
- Have a picnic
- Find a picturesque spot and relax besides the lake.
- Race to the top - who will be the first to enjoy the view from the Amphitheatre?
Whatever your mood or whoever you’re with, make our garden your sanctuary. And if it's raining, just borrow a brolly from the kiosk! Put on your wellies, search for the muddiest puddles you can find and have fun.
Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
