In 2010 when i visited my sister who lives in Manchester, UK, she asked what i would like to see while in the UK. I thought for a moment, and the idea that came up was, gardens. That’s what they’re famous for right? Well, they’re also famous for a few things: Soccer, Theatre and Musicals, Fish and Chips, afternoon tea etc., but i thought seeing an English garden would be the perfect sightseeing thing to do while in the UK. My sister brought me to see Fountains Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was a fabulous way to spend an afternoon.

To be honest, I don’t know much about gardening, but anyone would be able to appreciate the carefully put together elements of plants, water, sculpture. The Bodnant Garden was one of the best.

There are literally thousands of gardens in the UK, a testament to the Englishman’s love of gardening. The Leven’s Hall and Gardens is also nice one to visit enroute to the Lake District.
