Museum Gardens Day
Visit the Museum Gardens and chat to the Garden Team
In addition to our historical buildings, the Museum boasts a number of small traditional gardens. These gardens have been designed and planted to be as authentic as possible in regard to the buildings they surround. They are managed organically and are mostly looked after by museum volunteers.
Our gardens include a formal Arts and Crafts garden, a pretty cottage garden, and a ‘dig for victory’ allotment (next to the 1940s prefab), cherry, and apple orchards. The orchards have a collection of heritage varieties, some local to the Chilterns.
There will be a Garden Walk and Plant Guide at 11.30am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 2.30pm
