With striking colours, perfumed scents and relaxing spaces to take in the view, National Trust gardens are wonderful places to visit during the summer months.
It’s time to make the most of nature and enjoy vibrant displays of flowers on long, refreshing days.
Why not celebrate the arrival of summer and visit some of the charity’s top gardens in bloom.
These include Mount Stewart in the Ards Peninsula, Rowallane Garden, Castle Ward, Springhill on the edge of the picturesque Sperrin Mountains, Florence Court gardens overlooked by the dramatic outline of the Cuilcagh Mountain and The Argory situated in a wooded park above the River Blackwater.
All have much to offer the visitor particularly the keen gardener or walker.
