London Historic Garden Walk


Tom Turner, Principal Lecturer in Garden History at the University of Greenwich’s School of Architecture, Design & Construction and the driving force behind gardenvisit.com  has has created a 20 mile walking tour of London’s secret gardens to celebrate the inaugural Chelsea Fringe, the off-shoot of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The walk, which can also be followed by bike, stops at 40 points through London, following a loop covering over 3,500 years of history, from Henry VIII’s hunting grounds to Roman gardens and a modern city farm. 

Visit London Gardens Walk for the route and for more information.  There is also an e-book available for Kindle - and today it will be free to download.

The Chelsea Fringe Festival runs until 10 June.
