The garden won first prize out of 3200 entries in the R H S National Garden Competition and is now a Royal Horticultural Society's "Recommended Garden". It is described in the Good Gardens Guide as "a gem""a delightful garden...skilful underplanting...never feels contrived...just natural and generous...it is a wonderful education in the handling of a small space." The garden has been featured in magazines all over the world.A recent article in the Sunday Times said..."the most densely planted garden I have ever seen." The praise is fulsome...don't miss this garden whilst in Richmond. Many return again and again at different seasons. Open Daily 10 00 am til 5 00pm April til Oct Entrance £2 00 « less

The garden is well worth the half hour or so required to wander among the wide variety of trees, shrubs and plants that fill it so abundantly.

This is a magical garden created lovingly over 35 years by Tim and Austin. I have never seen such a stunning private garden and together with their house it is a marvelous experience.

Make sure you've got good shoes for those lovely walks around the old historic streets. Loved the views from all the high points and all would have been brighter had the sun shone!
