Strawbery Banke Museum and Gardens

Strawberry Banke is a seventeenth century plantation settlement beside Puddle Dock. The Museum has a set of re-created colonial period gardens including the Sherburne Garden, the Victory Garden, the Aldrich Garden, the Goodwin Garden and a herb garden. They were domestic gardens with flowers and vegetables, not fashionable gardens, owing much to the town gardens of late-renaissance Europe. The Sherburne Garden is a seventeenth century kitchen garden with raised beds, recreated on it original site. The Victory Garden is a recreation of the garden of the family who lived on the site during the Second World War.
