The London Gardens Trust welcomes you to discover the history of London’s parks and gardens through our Inventory. You can also learn about the people that have shaped London’s parks and Gardens and ongoing management challenges through our regular of series of talks and our regular publications.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer, helping with events such as London Open Gardens; researching and recording; or helping to campaign to protect London’s precious landscapes.
