Gardenvisit Editorial

A small re-created seventeenth century knot garden in a former churchyard. It commemorates two famous gardeners whose tomb is also there. John Tradescant and his son were gardners to Charles I and II - and were adventurous plant hunters. The garden adjoins the Museum of Garden History.

The Garden Museum is on the London Gardens Walk and included in the eBook guide to the London Gardens Walk

    No car parking is available on the Museum site. Tours would have to be by special arrangement.
