We travel to the Dorset seaside to visit the historic gardens of Compton Acres. Built in 1924 by Thomas Simpson (a margarine entrepreneur) the grounds consist of a number of themed gardens to wander around and enjoy, including the Italian, Japanese and Rock & Water Gardens. Refreshments are available at The Compton Acres Tea Rooms or Harbour View Cafe. In the afternoon we shall return via Bournemouth and make a brief stop for tea before we continue on home.
