Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Greater London / Enfield / 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.

A outing of friends to enjoy the snowdrops, early crocus and daffodils. A nice area to relax and enjoy nature. A compact site with good access. Especially liked the mistletoe.

We visited in winter and there was so much to see, much more than some gardens that we have visited that were boasting about winter colour. There are snowdrops everywhere! The greenhouses are probably the best cared for greenhouses I have ever seen, someone clearly loves them. We will be back in the summer! This is a great place to spend a couple of hours and you only have to pay £2.50 to park!
What a great find! Beautiful place for a walk and a spot of lunch, very friendly. Highlights were all the greenhouses, stunning plants and such a variety.. they had plants I've never seen before.. £2.50 to park all day
