Must See! Englands Most Beautiful Garden

Stourhead Natural Gardens by National Trust.

Stourhead Gardens

I stumbled upon this place through a recommendation by friend, he mentioned it was one of the most beautiful natural gardens in England. I visited it a week and a bit ago and absolutely loved it. although I have only been in Autumn πŸ‚ thats when I would really reccomend to go. The autumn foliage is absolutely stunning. The leaves turn yellow orange and some even have a red tint to it. the Walk around the garden is really beautiful as well. The path's are nicely constructed and itll take you about 40 minutes to walk the entire park. Whilst you are there sit down for a picnic and just admire the view as well as reading up about the history of the place and looking at the artifacts. Stourhead is the perfect place if you are into nature and the outdoors as well as a leisurely sunday stroll. The peaceful atmosphere is perfect for unwinding and disconnecting from the stressful outside world.

I went for the sole purpose of taking autumnal photos to update my 2019 autumn catalog. If you are a photographer or just a beginner this place is the perfect place to take photos there are so many different compositions you can create and so many different types of photos you can take. Make sure you get in really early to avoid the masses of crowds that come in after 9am especially on weekends. The lake is usually at its calmest very early in the morning, if you want to get that spectacular bridge reflection seen in the photo below you will need to go early morning. Plus you get the park all to yourself :)
