*Update – the gardens are now closed until spring 2024*
In the warmer weather, a visit to the museum isn’t complete without exploring our beautiful gardens including a Walled Kitchen Garden and Woodland Walk.
Visit our beautiful Walled Garden filled with seasonal fruit and veg and colourful flowers. It evokes the character of a working Victorian Kitchen Garden.
We have two hives in our Walled Garden, home to 120,000 honeybees in the summer. Please keep a safe distance while they are busy working and saving the planet.
Pull on your wellies and explore our hidden woodland. Climb under old tyres, make a den and play in the mud kitchen. Open during museum hours (April - October)
A winter garden was a must for Victorian high society. Today you can still enjoy the tropical planting and enjoy unrivalled views of the park.
