Abbotsbury Garden on the Dorset coast is a great natural attraction to enjoy for a family day out if you are looking for what to do or things to do in Dorset. This spectacular Dorset garden was established in 1765 overlooking the dramatic chesil beach and coast.
As well as a wealth of history it features a festival of plants and flowers. It was voted “Our favourite garden” by the Daily Telegraph readers, and many consider it to be the finest garden in Dorset. Covering 30 acres this fabulous Dorset garden is home to exotic plants and flowers from every corner of the world, making it a perfect wedding location. The garden is fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, and brides love the flower backdrops for their wedding photographs. Snuggling in an enchanted valley with inspiring views of the Dorset coast, the garden is also a popular venue for concerts, theatre, and events.
The garden also has a restaurant, gift shop, plants nursery and free parking.
