Garden visits come out tops

Visiting gardens is now the most popular attraction in England, according to the results of VisitEngland’s Annual Attractions Survey.

The survey, which gathered information from more than 1,500 English attractions, found that outdoor attractions performed particularly well, with gardens showing growth of eight per-cent.

Historic houses and castles reported a seven per-cent increase in visitor numbers, and country parks a four per-cent increase. A spokesman said; “The many gardens in our landscape are attracting more and more visitors every year and reflects not just the English love of gardening but also how much we enjoy seeing how other gardens  manage to achieve such beauty”
