We spent a wonderful day at RHS Bridgewater today. It’s fairly close to me, about 50 mins drive. It is truly spectacular from the moment you drive through the main entrance to park the car and then enter the main garden via the beautiful Welcome building. The BBC program about the building of the garden doesn’t really prepare you for the emotional impact on first seeing the garden for real. Glorious! My photos ( taken on iPhone) don’t come anywhere close to capturing it properly. 
It’s going to be great watching this garden mature over the coming years.

    It's on the wish list,  but we would need to find somewhere,  to stay over as we are too far  away for a day trip.

    On my wishlist too, but I'm also a smidge too far for a day trip (given that I'd want several hours there). I have some friends over that way so maybe next year a visit will be on the cards.

    It shows so clearly how they benefitted from having the extra months to get it ready due to the lockdowns. Everything looks so well bedded in, very impressive. I'll have to do with another visit to Wisley over the weekend but at least will get to see the new lab building. Have to come up to visit Bridgewater soon.

    Great photos @Bright star. we’re booked to visit mid July for my birthday, staying a few days locally as live in Hertfordshire. I can’t wait 😊

    I’m sure you won’t be disappointed @Nanniemo, wear comfy shoes it’s a very large area!

    I was there yesterday too, I wonder if we passed each other! 

    I live round the corner, and to be honest I wasn't going to go as I was really upset about the killing of the deer that were in the way.  However my Grandma really wanted to go and I don't see why someone else's bad behaviour should mean she can't enjoy something she was looking forward to.  

    I did like the garden, I might go again on one of the free days for local residents, I was pleased to see there was a lot of consideration for local wildlife, its really the least they can do!

    There are a couple of hotels close by, a Marriott and a Novotel within walking distance.

    There's always Wisley of course for the southerners - I believe they've just up-specced that too.
