Bennetts Water Gardens is an 8 acre garden situated just 2 miles west of Weymouth harbour. The gardens hold the National Plant Collection® of Water Lilies, which can be seen flowering throughout the summer, along with a Claude Monet style Japanese Bridge, Tropical House, Woodland Walks and Museum.
Café Monet, our licensed restaurant, is a great place to go for a coffee and piece of homemade cake, lunch or an afternoon cream tea, all while enjoying the views over the neighbouring water gardens.
Whether you are visiting the gardens or just stopping by the cafe for refreshment be sure to browse the gift shop and plant nursery.
The gardens are also available as a unique Wedding Venue for Civil Ceremonies, Receptions, Functions and Corporate Events.
We have a free customer car park onsite, or we are just a short bus journey from Weymouth town centre. Take either bus service X53 or 8 to Chickerell, the nearest bus stop is at Chickerell Army Camp, and the gardens are then a short walk down the road.
