Garden Nature / Park
Delve into the enchanting six acres of Myddelton House Gardens and discover the compelling story of one of Britain’s most famous self-taught gardeners, artists and expert botanists - Edward Augustus Bowles. He lived in Myddelton House from 1865 to 1954 and dedicated much of his life to transforming the gardens with his love of unusual and exotic plants. There’s an impressive range of flora and fauna to stimulate the senses each season. Explore the unusual plants of the Lunatic Asylum, newly restored Kitchen Garden, colourful Alpine Meadow and the extensive snowdrop collection which bring the gardens to life during February. The gardens are also home to a beautiful carp lake, a Victoria conservatory and a number of historical artefacts collected and treasured by Mr Bowles, including pieces from the original St Paul’s Cathedral and the Enfield Market Cross. Don’t miss the 108 year old Wisteria which turns a brilliant blue when it flowers during May.

  • A lovely peaceful place for a light lunch. Beautiful gardens, free to visit. The kitchen garden is worth a special mention. You have to pay to park the car but it's very reasonable.
  • Really lovely garden for everyone to enjoy. There's an impressive greenhouse with succulents and cacti. Also on site is a café which I didn't visit, but I bought some plants from the little shop next to it. The plants were reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this garden whether you're interested in horticulture or not.
  • A lovely place to go for a couple of hours. Beautiful grounds. Nice tea room. Tranquillity itself. £2.50 to park the car but no other costs to walk round the grounds. I come here regularly for a short quiet period and a cream tea of course.
  • I love this place for a gentle stroll. The flower beds are very relaxed and there are lots of little surprises. Upon my last visit i came across lots of noisy frogs and their spawn. Every visit is a treat and the cafe is a lovely spot to have a drink after a walk.
  • Beautiful, peaceful, well maintained outdoor and indoor botanical landscaped, free for visitors, gardens with a nice cafe in Enfield. I especially enjoyed indoor gardens in a glass house. Very inspirational beautiful collection. Friendly staff. Nice bluebells park in Spring
