WELCOME TO

The Beth Chatto Gardens

Welcome to the Beth Chatto Gardens. The Gardens are situated in Elmstead Market, a 10 minute drive from Colchester. They were created by award winning gardener, author and lecturer Beth Chatto, who won 10 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, in 10 consecutive years. Now, they are an inspiration to gardeners and garden lovers and we welcome visitors from all over the world. We are also a renowned nursery and stock over 2000 varieties of plants, many propagated from plants in the Gardens. When you visit, don't miss our guided garden walks, free gardening talks, acclaimed Tearoom and tempting Gift Shop. We are open every day, all year round, except for between Christmas and the New Year.
