Bennetts Water Gardens

Situated just outside Weymouth, this glorious water garden of 8 acres holds the national collection of Water Lilies.Many of the plants came from the same nursery in France that supplied Claude Monet's garden in Giverny.Indeed, there is a Monet style bridge in the garden. Unfortunately we were a month or two late in the season to see the spectacular displays for which the garden is famous but there is alway next year!!
