Bennett’s Water Gardens are a beautiful Weymouth attraction, and they open to the public between April and September. Created by the Bennett family during the 1950s, the gardens still boast some of the original water lilies planted at the time and they offer something new to see every year.
The infamous water lilies captured by Monet will spring to mind as soon as you catch sight of the gardens, and there’s a Japanese-inspired bridge that was built to commemorate his famous painting’s one hundredth anniversary. Whether you have a passion for plants and flowers or just fancy a peaceful walk somewhere stunning this attraction is a popular place to while away a couple of hours, and it’s Dorset at its best.
The gardens are closed on Saturdays, and dogs are not permitted.
