The Garden Museum


About The Garden Museum

A museum of garden history that's inside an old church.

The museum is fairly modest unless you're an avid history of gardening, but the entry price does include climbing the narrow church tower to the top to get some amazing views across central London.

They also usually have a range of temporary exhibitions, and there's a popular cafe on site.
