Montpellier Gardens tree walk

montpellier gardens

Montpellier Gardens were developed over 200 years ago and originally developed as pleasure gardens to provide an appropriate setting for the pump room and for society to meet and promenade. Originally open to the public on payment of an admission fee, the gardens were mainly frequented by those taking the waters. The change towards public ownership in the late 19th century saw pleasure gardens become places of public amusement, recreation and resort.

The self-guided tree walk leaflet provides you with more history and interesting facts about Montpellier Gardens and also takes in the more significant trees, some of which are as old as the gardens themselves.
