Campaigns: Victoria Tower Gardens

The planning application for the UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in Victoria Tower Gardens has now been submitted.

We have been working with the Save Victoria Tower Gardens and Thorney Island Society campaign groups to oppose this application on the basis that the memorial will compromise an important green space and would be better sited elsewhere. 

Read our full objection letter including plans plus our conservation and significance statement, and view our dedicated web page for the latest information.

Sharing Repton

ThumbnailEngaging new audiences in the care and celebration of parks and gardens.

The Sharing Repton project is one of five national pilots funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund. LPGT worked in collaboration with English Heritage, The Gardens Trust, and three refugee groups to engage new audiences in the care and celebration of parks and gardens. This project took place in two parts, firstly at Kenwood House and then in Russell Square. This film shows part of the project that took place in Russell Square in May 2019. We created the film to show some of the potential benefits that derive from supporting the trust, whether through membership, donations, buying tickets to Open Garden Squares Weekend or other fund-raising events.
