We visited Anglesey Abbey gardens last month with my father in a wheelchair, and it is an excellent place to visit for the disabled. Plenty of disabled parking right by the visitor centre, restaurant and shop. We hired for free a motorability scooter (PMV), and put our wheelchair back in the car as my father really enjoyed being able to drive around the gardens – they are so level being in fen country, and access to the whole garden was easy from the rose garden to the mill leat (as long as you take care), and even to the wildlife section at the far end of the garden. The herbaceous gardens were beautiful, and the dahlias will be a glorious display later in the year, and the garden is renowned for snowdrops and a winter garden in the Spring which I have seen before. Rain stopped play unfortunately, after about an hour and a half exploring the gardens, but we dried off having tea in the restaurant. We did not visit the Abbey this time, but we have before, with fine furnishings and rare clocks collected by Lord Fairhaven. It is well worth a visit to this National Trust property, and often the Lode Mill is working and is open with the Abbey Wednesday to Sunday, but the gardens are open daily and are highlight of a visit.
