1000 Places: Stourhead Gardens


The first stop we made during our private tour with Vic's Taxi was Stourhead Gardens. Simply put, this 2600+ acre estate is like stepping into a painting. It's just gorgeous.
The second my mom and I saw the lake we were in shock. How can a country have something so beautiful to offer? It was divine. We were here in the morning when the grounds were less crowded and the air was cool; it was a perfect setting for this masterpiece of land. I still can't believe I was able to see this place in person. Highly recommended if you visit England. My mom and I only bought tickets for the gardens, but there are options to buy tickets for the house as well. I call it a house, but it's really like a mansion. Vic drove us by it as we were leaving, and my jaw dropped. I didn't even think to take a picture because I was in such awe by the sight of it.
