Which is your favourite?
This year Brits have spent more time in their gardens than ever before. And, not only do we love our own outdoor spaces, but visiting beautifully landscaped gardens is also one of our favourite past times.
National Trust gardens provide a scenic (and socially-distanced) day out, and their gorgeous flower gardens, manicured lawns and quaint water features also provide the perfect inspiration for anyone looking to spruce up their own outdoor area.
To help inspire both UK trips and garden renovations, Rated People has created an index, based on how picturesque and how well-rated the gardens are, to reveal the best National Trust garden in the country.
Every National Trust garden in the UK was analysed, using both the number of Instagram hashtags and quality of Google reviews to create a unique index of the best gardens across the UK.
The research reveals that Tatton Park in Cheshire is the best National Trust garden to visit in Britain. The historical estate boasts a neo-classical mansion surrounded by landscaped gardens stretching over 50 acres. Beyond the gardens are a thousand more acres of parkland with wild deer grazing, a rare breed farm and a medieval Old Hall to explore.
Cheshire and Derbyshire are the counties with the most National Trust gardens in the top 10. Tatton Park and Lyme Park in Cheshire rank first and sixth, whilst Calke Gardens and Parklands and Hardwick Gardens and Parkland place at eighth and ninth respectively.
