Garden Museum (formerly Museum of Garden History)

Garden Museum  (formerly Museum of Garden History),London Information
Situated in the restored church of St. Mary-At-Lambeth, adjacent to Lambeth Palace on the River Thames, the Museum of Garden History provides a fascinating insight into the history and development of gardens and gardening in the UK, an important facet in our social history. The Museum houses one of the finest public displays of garden tools and garden related artefacts and curiosities in the country, as well as an intriguing collection of garden related ephemera.

In addition, a beautiful replica 17th century knot garden filled with flowers and shrubs of the period has been created in the graveyard around the tombs of the famous 17th century plant hunters, the John Tradescants, father and son, and Captain William Bligh of the 'Bounty'

The Museum runs a regular programme of exhibitions, events and lectures, as well as educational activities for families. Contact the Museum for more information.
