Safari Garden Video Tour - Part 1

The first in a series of video tours of Devon's rewilded Capability Brown gardens

The video above takes you on a short tour of the lower rewilded gardens at Exeter’s Capability Brown gardens, a part of the LettsSafari Network of Parks. The lower gardens feature wild grasses and wild flowers surrounded by copses of magnolia, maple and willow trees. A new wetland area supports reeds and wild scrub.

See if you can spot one of the southwest’s tallest trees!

We hope you enjoy the video tour (top of page), the first of a series on the amazing 15 acre Capability Brown gardens on the outskirts of Exeter - one of the first safari gardens and a unique historic garden rewilding project.

Capability Brown cedar trees frame the views and provide vast homes for wildlife
