Gardens and Parks in London

Escape from your hectic everyday life for a calm walk through beautiful landscapes this summer. Wander through the gardens and parks at Ham House, Osterley Park and House, Morden Hall Park, Runnymede and Rainham Hall. Every visit helps us care for these special landscapes for years to come.

Ham House and Garden 

Wander the formal gardens, walled kitchen garden and relax in an environment filled with plants from the time of the Duchess of Lauderdale. Spot beautiful swathes of lavender in the Cherry Garden, a favourite among pollinating bees and butterflies.

The Garden House at Osterley, Middlesex

Osterley Park and House 

The formal gardens at Osterley Park and House offer a relaxing retreat from urban life with herbaceous borders, roses and ornamental vegetables beds. Look out for the original Robert Adam summer house full of lemon trees and highly scented shrubs then take a break on the deckchairs on the temple lawn or a picnic in the ancient meadow, bursting with wildflowers and butterflies.

Rainham Hall 

Settle in to the sculpted amphitheatre and enjoy the sunshine as coral and ‘plum pudding’ poppies will emerge in the newly seeded wildflower meadow. See dragonflies and cinnabar moths move from the meadow to the mixed perennial boarder with its vibrant summer display.

Fenton House and Garden 

Contrasting colours combine to create a vibrant display in the lawn boarder at Fenton House and Garden during the summer months. In the North Terrace cosmos and salvia stretch to impressive heights whilst in the Kitchen Garden and orchard the serious business of growing begins.

Runnymede, Surrey

Runnymede

Grasses and wildflowers grow long giving the meadows a hazy colour, perfect for keen photographers. There are plenty of shady patches to enjoy under the trees of Coopers Hill Woods and the cafe will be on hand with cooling treats.
