Now it is a 49 acre, 18th century landscape Garden offering peace and tranquillity in safe surroundings together with a level pathway around the serpentine lake and a unique turf amphitheatre. Visit Claremont and experience its beautiful and often surprising features, including the Belvedere Tower, Camellia Terrace, ‘wild’ animal statues and grotto.
