Delve into the enchanting six acres of Myddelton House Gardens and discover the compelling story of one of Britain’s most famous self-taught gardeners, artists and expert botanists - Edward Augustus Bowles. He lived in Myddelton House from 1865 to 1954 and dedicated much of his life to transforming the gardens with his love of unusual and exotic plants. There’s an impressive range of flora and fauna to stimulate the senses each season. Explore the unusual plants of the Lunatic Asylum, newly restored Kitchen Garden, colourful Alpine Meadow and the extensive snowdrop collection which bring the gardens to life during February. The gardens are also home to a beautiful carp lake, a Victoria conservatory and a number of historical artefacts collected and treasured by Mr Bowles, including pieces from the original St Paul’s Cathedral and the Enfield Market Cross. Don’t miss the 108 year old Wisteria which turns a brilliant blue when it flowers during May.

  • I am extremely impressed with how well kept these gardens are. It's a nice place for a few hours out but bring your own food if you are planning on eating as I'm unsure if there are any cafe's of any sort around. Good for all ages, would definitely recommend.
  • Nice place. Went in September so probably not as flowery as in spring or summer, still nice though. They produce their own organic veg which you can purchase. Cost is £2.50 for parking, or free of you walk here!
