A seventeenth century enclosed garden. It was made, in 1673, as a garden in which to grow plants for medicinal purposes and, though it is still a botanical garden, has the appearance of an ornamental garden with regular walks. The garden's position near the Thames was chosen to allow non-native plants to grow in the warmer microclimate created by the river.
