Create an itinerary including Myddelton House Gardens
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.

  • How beautiful is this Place! Oh my goodness what a find. A truly magnificent garden. Absolutely stunning at the moment with all the various spring plants and blossom. This is a must. Please support them and as a plus there is a lovely little cafe for a latte at the end of your visit. Enjoy!
  • Not the largest ornamental garden but very nicely kept. There is an interesting kitchen garden section, a lovely meadow area and a nice pond. A couple of smaller ponds near the boundary need some TLC, or filling in and planting. Staff in the visitor centre were very helpful. Free entry was most welcome, the parking charge less so. An hour and a half was plenty to see everything.
