Two walled gardens I've enjoyed

Today I'm looking back at two walled gardens I've enjoyed and that I hope you'll enjoy too. Because really there's nothing that brings a smile to my face as much as a walled garden does. So let's get started.

1. The walled garden at Marks Hall Arboretum, Essex

It's a couple of years since we visited the arboretum and when we did I wasn't expecting to find a walled garden, but we did.  It really was beautiful and you'd never know that these pictures were taken on a rainy Bank Holiday - what is it with Bank Holidays and rain?

2. The walled garden at Houghton Hall, Norfolk

This garden is huge for a walled garden and we didn't leave enough time to enjoy it properly, but even in our less-than-an-hour-quick-dash around this garden we saw so much. And it's one we'll be visiting again when we're in Norfolk.

I was surprised to realise that I've only managed to write about two walled gardens so far, I'm clearly lacking in this department.  So please let me know your favourite walled garden so I can start making a list.
