The English Heritage Grade 2 garden at Belvoir Castle will be open to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday (June 6).
The formal garden was designed by Harold Peto and replanted with roses by the present Duchess. There is a Japanese garden with camellias, magnolias and hydrangeas set in a natural amphitheatre with fresh water springs. There are many mature specimen trees, and shrubs and the spring gardens house a spectacular collection of acers, rhododendrons and azaleas. Flat shoes are essential and there are some steep paths.
Admission is £8, children £5. More details at www.belvoircastle.com
