Additional Info

Backing onto the National Trusts Claremont Landscape Gardens which is steeped in nearly 300 years of history, this eighteenth-century garden is a green oasis in the heart of Esher within easy reach of London. Previously the countryside retreat of queens and heirs, Claremont has always been somewhere to escape everyday life and enjoy simple outdoor pleasures.

Many of the great names in landscape design history played a part in the creation of the Claremont estate. Over the years Sir John Vanbrugh, Charles Bridgeman, William Kent and ‘Capability’ Brown all put their own distinctive stamp on the pleasure grounds, and in 1866 Queen Victoria herself acquired the estate to save it from development.

Today there are still many unique and unexpected features to discover, including the large turf amphitheatre, serpentine lake, grotto, Camellia Terrace and Belvedere Tower.
