we visited when dahlias were out, incredible display. You can spend a day here in the grounds, so much to see. Different areas in different styles. The winter garden was beautiful with beds of cyclamen. The house full of treasures collected, and lots of paintings and art to look at. Well worth a visit. Great that NT bring houses to... More

Many large NT gardens are well tended in the prime areas near the house but descend into unkempt jungle far out near the edges. Not so Anglesey Abbey, the whole of the garden was an enjoyable experience, even under dense trees they have done great things with Cyclamens. The dahlias were just going over but still very impressive. Loved the... More

We went to visit Anglesey Abbey on a glorious day in September and were overwhelmed by the gardens from the wonderful cyclamen path, the sliver birch walk, very eery in the right setting. The various walks that were available including the river walk.the woodland path, the warrior and emperors walk, showing different garden variations. The stupendous Dahlia Garden will be... More

The Dahlia garden is stunning at this time of year,many different varieties ,colours and sizes. In the National Trust house there are many Dahlia flower arrangements around the different rooms put together by a group of willing volunteers. Anglesey Abbey is a great NT property for families. Plenty of wide open gardens for young ones to have a good run... More

Dropped in here on the way to Southwold. Thoroughly enjoyable visit. Fully expected to bump into Bertie Wooster on a Country house weekend! Loved the bathrooms adjacent to the bedrooms, which must have used the entire production a of a marble quarry. Beautiful gardens. Superb art collection. Will probably visit again when in the area.

The gardens were stunning in the autumn sunshine, tranquil place to wander and re balance life. The conducted around the house was extremely interesting, would like to return when one can go round at leisure, so much to see. This is a National Trust gem. Well worth visiting.

The dahlia garden is at its best now, with an incredible display. Herbaceous garden was a disappointment as it was almost over, and dare I mention the uncontrolled children in the formal garden, jumping over the flower beds and pulling at the urns, whilst their parents looked on, unconcerned at the noise and distress to visitors. Sic transit Gloria! But... More

On a beautiful late summer day this is a lovely relaxing day out. The dahlia gardens are a spectacle with beautiful arrangements throughout the house. A credit also goes to the best bunch of room guides I have ever come across in the many NT house we have visited. They were very knowledgable and very keen to share this interesting... More

The gardens are fantastic and while this is not our first trip they never fail to satisfy - Try spring when the snowdrops are out and Autumn as the leaves drop.
