|More information about Stourhead Garden, Wiltshire||Location map|
Stourhead Garden lies a little north of the village of Mere by the A303 road and so is easily accessible. There is a large car park together with an overflow car park and it needs it. This is a very popular garden and understandably so. We arrived at about 10:30 one August morning and at that time there were plenty of empty spaces in the car park but when we left at about 1:30 in the afternoon the overflow car park was in use and there were more visitors arriving.
There is a shop and a self-service restaurant both of which are expensive but even so the restaurant was very busy when we left. There is also a pub, the Spread Eagle Inn, quite nearby which apparently provides good food although we didn't try it.
This will provide National Trust Information about Stourhead.
