The Garden Guide

Natural History Museum Wildlife Garden

The Natural History Museum's Wildlife Garden is in the south west corner of the museum's site. The land on which the garden was made 'was once an ecologically barren lawn'. The garden was planned for both fauna and flora. It is an attractive garden with great symbolic significance. Traditional gardens were places from which 'wildness' was excluded: only plants useful to man were included. The use could be for the kitchin, as medicines or for beauty. The  Wildlife Garden, designed by Adam Loxton Partnership landscape architects in 1995, symbolises a complete reversal of man's attidude to wild nature.

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

The Bee Tree is a beehive. Bark doors can be opened to see the busy bees making cells and collecting honey.
