The Lost Gardens

The Lost Gardens of Manchester exhibit outside Manchester Art Gallery

Find yourself a world away in the Lost Gardens of Manchester. Created by our urban gardener and volunteers, the garden installation at Manchester Art Gallery celebrates the city's rich gardening heritage. Grab yourself a deckchair and relax amongst the foliage.
