Alan Bloom bought Bressingham Hall and property in 1947 where he created the beautiful island beds of the 6 acre Dell Garden. His son, Adrian, created a second wonderful garden, Foggy Bottom next door. In total, there are over 8,000 species and varieties of plants on display.

 

Fantastic garden! We stayed in the house which is now a bread and breakfast and were able to wander the grounds in the evening and early morning before others were around. It was a wonderful experience to walk through the gardens where famed gardener Alan Bloom popularized the use of island beds in the landscape.

His famous nursery, Blooms of Bressingham is right next door and his son, Adrian Bloom's wonderful garden, Foggy Bottom is about 100 yards away. Very much worth the visit for dedicated gardeners and worth a stay at the B&B for a more personal experience.

Cambridge and its renowned University is a short drive away as is the outstanding garden at Anglesey Abby.
