Crescent Garden, Alverstoke, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 2DH
Take a guided tour of this unique garden, originally laid out in the Regency period as part of ‘Angleseyville’, and learn not only about its history but also the relevance of its horticulture…
Discover the gardens’ significance to the building of Angleseyville, how this historic Regency garden fell into abandonment, and the subsequent resurrection to its former glory.
The garden has been cared for by a dedicated team of volunteers, the Friends of Crescent Garden, for over 30 years. They will guide you on your tour, explaining not only the history but also the ethos of the planting.
It is a sensory delight, full of great things to see, touch and smell. You may even catch sight of Regency-styled ladies taking in the healthy sea air as they enjoy a stroll through the garden.
