Myddelton House garden now open free

Myddelton House garden, a diversion off the Lea Valley Walk, is now open with no admission charge.

The grounds of the Lee Valley Park Authority have been restored following a two year Heritage Lottery Funded project. There a new visitor centre and tea room.

On election day last week the Duchess of Cornwall made a little reported visit to the garden which is famous for being looked after by a member of her family Edward Augustus Bowles.

He lived in Myddelton House from 1865 to 1954 and introduced the unusual and exotic plants. The 108 year old Wisteria flowers this month.

The gardens are open daily from 9.30am to 6pm; free.
