20 May 2021 marks Abney Park's 181st birthday. Join us for a virtual tour and live Q&A as we look in detail at the history of these woodland giants.

Tree expert Russell Miller will take you on a tour of Abney Park's surviving remnants of the famous Loddiges arboretum.

Abney Park had a greater collection of trees than Kew Gardens when it opened in 1840: it was planted with an amazing 2,500 species of trees and shrubs.The economics of cemetery management led to many removals over the next 180 years, but around 20 original Loddiges trees survive. Russell will guide you to these, some so rare that they no longer feature in modern tree nomenclature.
