The Larmer Tree Gardens near Tollard Royal in south Wiltshire, England, were created by landowner Augustus Pitt Rivers in 1880 as pleasure grounds for "public enlightenment and entertainment". They were the first private gardens opened for public enjoyment in the United Kingdom, and were free to enter. The 11-acre (4.5 ha) Grade II* listed gardens are within the Rushmore Estate in Cranborne Chase, an ancient royal hunting ground and now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • Beautiful formal gardens with hidden corners, statues & sculpture, & interesting buildings tucked away. The Gardens host two festivals over the summer, which are both great. Although it's primarily a wedding venue, the Gardens are worth exploring and there are occasional plays during the summer. Worth a visit if you're passing
  • Had my wedding there on the 24th June 2019. Such a stunning place. The staff were so great and helpful. Wasn't too give a huge thanks to the staff who had to put up with us and for their patience. Would highly recommend and freshly 5 stars is not enough to give for all the hard work and support we received. Thank you all. Michael & Helen
