Well there's clearly something in the air at Claremont Landscape Gardens, either that or it's the entire bag of fruit jellies I devoured beforehand at the on-site café! I can entirely understand why the location was once a playground for princesses as well as a Dukes' retreat. It has been described as a place to 'escape everyday life and enjoy simple pleasures' - and I couldn't have put it better myself! Although there are various attractions scattered throughout the grounds (such as the large turf amphitheatre, serpentine lake, grotto and more), the main attraction through my eyes was the lake; it sat beautifully still unless a duck plunged through the surface.
One thing is for certain, I got exactly what I was hoping for at Claremont Landscape Garden - tranquility. As you most likely know by now, I make quite a habit out of searching for beauty in any shape or form. Beautiful locations/grounds, buildings, exhibitions, design, fashion; the list goes on and on! However with the recent tragic events in Paris taking place, I've found I need a little more reminding than usual of how blissful and gentle the world can be. Consider me well and truly reminded.
I hope you're feeling as refreshed and tranquil as possible - though if not, rest assured there are thousands of places to lend you a helping hand, all of which are just waiting to be enjoyed!
