Myddelton House Gardens, Enfield
(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Myddleton is a beautiful location, free entry all year round, and perfect for a short walk. Get away from the city and delve into wild gardens, a destination the whole family will enjoy. Scenic views, family friendly and mostly wheelchair accessible. Bring a picnic, or eat at the on site café. A relaxing day out.
  • Lottery grant has helped restore the gardens to their former glory. E.A Bowles and unveiled by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in 2011. There is a cafe and entrance is free.
