Immersing yourself in nature is proven to give your body and mind a boost. Even if you can't physically visit a garden, you can still reap some of the calming benefits of nature by exploring it virtually.
To visit any of our gardens via the comfort of home, follow these simple steps:
1) search for the garden you want to visit on Google Maps
2) click and hold on the peg person (at the bottom right of the page)
3) drag the peg person to any of the dots that will appear on the map to take you to that location
4) click and move the cursor around to get a 360 degree view of that part of the garden...and enjoy!
