Enjoy the Garden Museum and explore and celebrate British gardens and gardening through their collection, temporary exhibitions, events and garden.

Visitors will also see a permanent display of paintings, tools, ephemera and historic artefacts: a glimpse into the uniquely British love affair with gardens. Whether you are an enthusiastic amateur gardener, more of a specialist or someone with a passion for museums, history or architecture, the Garden Museum has something for you.

Take a stroll through the carefully curated gardens, or sit and enjoy the harmonious beauty of the plants and vegetation around you. There are no other rules. Even as little as five minutes will help you to enjoy the restorative benefits of being peaceful in a green place.

There are always lots of talks and activities happening, alongside the curated exhibitions. Visit our what’s on page to see the latest events coming up at the Garden Museum.

We recommend that you also visit the award-winning Garden Café – refresh in the nature immersed, light-filled space and enjoy the seasonal menu, carefully curated on a daily basis with its focus on fresh ingredients, celebrating seasonal British cuisine. Florian Wupperfeld awarded the Leading Culture Destinations: Best Restaurant accolade to the Garden Café, praising its culinary culture as “a hidden gem for art and food lovers alike’.

It also comes highly commended by Jay Rayner in a Guardian weekend food review, and despite its popularity, it manages to remain a little known wonder in this part of town. Be in the know and make sure to enjoy a visit, it’s an easy and relaxing way to while away a few quiet hours in the middle of a busy part of London.
