Join our Unseen Spaces Garden Tour 

Join one of Polesden’s garden guides as they take you behind the scenes in this exclusive tour. You’ll be able to visit parts of the gardens not usually open to our visitors including the gardener’s yard, greenhouse and compost area. Hear about the history of the gardens, how we care for them and keep them beautiful and productive, and more.


" This garden was a playground for the rich and famous in the early part of the 20th century. Just a stone's throw from London, it was pure escapism for city life."
- Simon Akeroyd
