Set over 8 acres the gardens hold the National Plant Collection® of Water Lilies with a Claude Monet style Japanese Bridge, Tropical House, Woodland Walks and Museum.

Grass pathways lead you through the series of ponds and lakes surrounded by wetland plants, native trees, palms, wild plants and flowers. The gardens are a 'Site of Nature Conservation Interest' and home to abundant wildlife.

There are scenic places to sit and unwind and shaded woodland walks to explore. The Tropical House contains exotic plants including a cacti collection and a Family Nature Trail keeps young visitors interested.

The Museum contains local history of Chickerell village (mentioned in the Domesday Book), Chesil Beach & Fleet lagoon, plus the fascinating history of this site from the Brickworks & Clay Pits of 1859 through to the gardens of today.
