A lovely setting, large expanse of Water Lily's, amid pagoda, & lush green expanse of grass. Cafe Monet, echoing the well loved picture by Monet. Interior & exterior seating, Tables, Sunshades, overlooking a large lake, filled with Lily's.

I didn't expect much here, but my girlfriend really wanted to see the water gardens, so we came. And nearly left again when we saw the disgusting green water fountain outside the gardens. Luckily that was by far the worst part of the gardens. The...More

If you want to see water lilies, Bennetts Water Gardens near Weymouth is the place to visit. Many different types floating in the lakes. The picture shows a reconstruction of Monet's famous painting.

Stunning and so photogenic! So beautifully laid out with landscaped pools rolling on after each other. I just couldn't stop taking images and videos of the amazing water lilies and plant life. A must if you are in that area.

I took an elderly friend to Bennetts Water Gardens today for lunch. Lovely food with stunning views over one of the lakes. Would definitely recommend a visit. June and July I believe is best for the Lilly displays.

Worth a visit if you are in the area as it is so different. The lily ponds and the surrounding trees are beautiful but you do need to go when the lilies are at their best ie May to Sept/Oct and when the sum is...More

We stopped here first thing before a group walk along the Fleet, and the coffee shop provided a first class coffee before we set out. The views of the lily-covered lakes were tantalising - we just didn’t have time to look at them properly -...More
