Far From the Madding Crowd

Abbotsbury sub-tropical Gardens and Unique Swannery

Explore one of the most famous sub-tropical gardens in England, the unique Swannery and the pretty village of Abbotsbury

The charming historic village of Abbotsbury lies on Dorset’s World Heritage UNESCO Jurassic Coast.
A secluded haven, home to two tranquil attractions sure to please nature lovers.

Abbotsbury Swannery – the world’s only colony of nesting mute swans – established in the 14th century gives shelter to over 1, 000 of these graceful birds, and the Sub-tropical Gardens bloom with plant life and colorful florals.

In 1765, a kitchen garden was created by the first Countess of Ilchester.
Boasting large rhododendron and hydrangea collections and a glorious Victorian garden, Abbotsbury is world-famous for its camellia groves, magnolias, rhodenendren and Hydrangea collections.

We will also have time to visit one of the prettiest villages in England and have the chance to stop to view some of the greatest views of the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic coast.
