England is perhaps one of the world's most garden-loving countries, having more public gardens than any other country. For those in need of a relaxing vacation, public parks provide a pleasant respite. Public gardens are becoming increasingly popular in several of the UK's largest cities, particularly in congested metropolitan areas.
Things to Do in Manchester
Manchester, in the northwest of the UK, is home to a wide range of stately homes, protected landscapes and public gardens for locals and visitors to enjoy. Whether you want to time-travel back to the Tudor era, discover a secret walled garden or relax on a large lawn in the centre of a busy town, there's a garden to suit everyone's tastes when you visit Manchester.
Didsbury's Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens
Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens, originally the house of a local botanist, was presented to the city of Manchester by a local councillor, Fletcher Moss, in 1915. The mansion, formerly known as the Croft, was the site of the inaugural meeting of the charity RSPB. Thus the nearby wild and natural life has always been a big part of the property's history.
The park provides a quiet sanctuary for local visitors and a paved floral entrance into sections of the adjacent town, Didsbury, which has become a popular destination for people wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Manchester. The park has a house and cafe that is open most days of the week but take a short walk through the park, and you'll find some of Manchester's best restaurants just a short walk away.
Lyme Park, Disley
Lyme Park offers approximately 1,400 acres of beautiful space to explore and was used as the setting for the television production of Pride and Prejudice. The Edwardian Rose Garden, replete with an orangery, bedding displays, and a beautiful lake, is located amid the 18th-century home.
A trip around the garden lake will take you from one corner of the grounds to the other, allowing you to observe the new rose beds and well-kept lawns. The 19th-century gardens have a wide range of bedding plants, as well as ivies and trees. Water features and vegetation abound in the Orangerie, allowing you to observe plants and blooms you may not have seen before.
Bolton's Hive Gardens, Moss Bank Park
The Hive Garden, a variety of distinct outdoor and garden areas, is located amid the bustle of Moss Bank Park, a popular park among Manchester residents. The park contains a terraced portion and sensory garden and a wildlife-friendly garden and communal food growing space and is accessible through trails that run around the region.
The display gardens are primarily intended as a public attraction, attracting people from all over the North West. Still, the wildlife-friendly gardens and communal growing area are one of The Hive's significant attractions. The Hive is built with nature in mind, with pollinator-friendly plants in the growing beds and meadows, nettle and thistle beds, and fruit trees connecting the display gardens and polytunnels. Bees may explore and grow in the gardens since they have their own resident beehives.
