2016 Year of the English Garden

You may not know that 2016 has been designated as the Year of the English Garden by VisitEngland. Basically it is a PR initiative by VisitEngland to raise the profile of all English gardens to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Capability Brown, the famous garden designer.

Gardens continue to be one of the most popular visitor attractions for both domestic and international visitors to England. According to the Capability Brown website  more than half of international holiday visits include a trip to a park or garden, second only to shopping! Also one in five English residents (18%) visited a garden on their last break in England. This makes visiting gardens a very popular pastime.
