A desolate windswept cottage has been transported to central London – minus the wind and desolation and now offers a rare chance to step inside Derek Jarman’s famously rural home.
About the The Garden MuseumA 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.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
