Gardens and parks in London

Spring has sprung and across London a riot of sound and colour is bursting into life. Half a million bulbs push their way up through the plats at Ham House Garden to create a well orchestrated symphony of sights and smell. While in south London delicate blossoms hang deliciously from the branches of trees as wealth of wildlife returns to Morden Hall Park.

Every time you soak up the sights, you help us look after our places for many springs to come.

Visitors walking through a garden in spring

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside locations are open to visit. Shops are also open and outdoor seating is available at some cafés. Subject to government confirmation, we're planning to reopen houses in England and Wales from 17 May, and in Northern Ireland from 24 May. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. When space is available, particularly on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary. But to guarantee, entry please always book in advance, especially at busier times like weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy this 18th-century formal garden, returned to its full grandeur. The gardens are coming to life, with thousands of bulbs to brighten any day. Enjoy the blossom from flowering cherries on the American Boarder, surrounded by wildflowers. Find a peaceful moment in quiet garden, or experience the sea of bluebells on the Long Walk. In May, follow our Rose Route to enjoy the sight and scent of our roses.
