Clare­mont Gar­dens is a mas­ter­class in scale, space, bal­ance and the drama of sim­plic­ity. Fun­da­men­tally this is a land­scape of just grass, wa­ter, trees and rhodo­den­drons with a few hid­den jew­els to dis­cover and de­light in. Charles Bridge­man’s cur­va­ceous three-acre, grass am­phithe­atre sits mag­is­te­ri­ally above Wil­liam Kent’s ser­pen­tine lake and it is hard not to see con­nec­tions be­tween this 300-year-old land­scape and the work of Charles Jencks and Kim Wilkie. Portsmouth Road, Esher, Sur­rey KT10 9JG. Tel 01372 467806, na­tion­al­trust.org.uk/ clare­mont-land­scape-gar­den
