London Parks & Gardens Trust aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of parks, squares, community gardens, cemeteries, churchyards – all those places that form London's open space network.
Trust members – amateurs and professionals – provide and enjoy lectures, walks, day trips, children's programmes, a newsletter and journal, research and an inventory of historic green spaces.
Keep up to date with our activities and other news from the Trust.
Information on over 2,500 spaces across Greater London is now available at www.londongardensonline.org.uk. This information is derived from the Inventory of London's Green Spaces of Local Historic Interest, one of the Trust's biggest projects. It was researched with the valuable participation of many people.
The aim is to appeal to a broad range of users - from casual garden visitors to local residents, local historians, students, schoolchildren and teachers, planning authorities, architects, landscape designers, estate agents as well as tourists and visitors to London.
At London Parks & Gardens Trust volunteers carry out a wide range of roles depending on their own interests and abilities, from Area Co-ordinators for Open Garden Squares Weekend to Website Manager, and from Membership Secretary to organising activities and undertaking research.
We are affiliated to The Gardens Trust, a Powerful New Voice for Britain's Parks and Gardens.
Parks & Gardens UK is the leading on-line resource for historic parks and gardens providing freely accessible, accurate and inspiring information on UK parks, gardens and designed landscapes and all activities concerned with their promotion, conservation and management.

2018 sees the bi-centenary of the death of the landscape designer Humphry Repton (1752-1818). This beautifully illustrated book provides a fascinating insight into the unique range of gardens and landscapes Repton designed in and around the capital.
The cover of the current London Landscapes shows Kenwood, where Humphry Repton advised on landscaping.
