Spring gardens and parks to visit in London

During spring our London gardens, orchards and parks are filled with colour and scent. Seek out spring bulbs and blossom at Fenton House or Red House, find daffodills and heritage tulips at Ham House and Garden and discover carpets of bluebells at Osterley Park. Every time you stop by in spring you keep the gardens looking gorgeous all year round.

The garden at Fenton House

Fenton House and Garden 

In spring the walled garden at Fenton House bursts in to life. The 300 year old orchard develops soft blossoms above a stunning display of snake’s head fritillaries. The formal lawn is also at its best with a delicate tapestry of hellebores, daffodils, forget-me-nots, grape hyacinthine, and imperial fritillaries.

Ham House and Garden 

From the snowdrops and crocuses in the wilderness to parrot tulips at the front of the house there are plenty of spring sights to enjoy at Ham House and Garden. A living exhibition of four centuries of tulips will be in full bloom for mid-late April 2017, taking visitors through four centuries of styles, colours and shapes.

Osterley Park and House 

Visitors taking the Long Walk at Osterley Park and House in early spring are greeted with a carpet with bluebells. Whilst the walled potager garden is not to be missed - a striking mix of traditional plantings, ornamental vegetables and bright obelisks.

Red House 

Settle into the iron garden seat at Red House and take in the spring delights in this secluded suburban space. See how William Morris shunned the formality of Victorian fashion and cultivated a outdoor space that drew inspiration from medieval times with a style that would inspired his iconic designs such as 'Trellis'.
