Claremont Landscape Garden, owned by the National Trust, it is one of the earliest and finest gardens of the English Landscape style and provides a tranquil oasis in urban Surrey.

The pleasure grounds and parkland was created by some of the great names in garden history: Sir John Vanbrugh, Charles Bridgeman. William Kent and Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. The landscape contains a unique 18th century grass amphitheatre. The serpentine lake is home to a superb variety of waterfowl; visitors may spot up to 52 species. The site contains one of the finest Cedars of Lebanon in England.

Every summer the garden is the setting for open-air concerts and other al fresco events. There are also lots of exciting children’s trails. Claremont Landscape Gardens lies to the south of Esher, and is easily accessible from the A3, the M25 and only 20miles from London.
