About Us

The London Gardens Trust is a small charity with a big mission to champion London’s historic parks, gardens, squares and green spaces for the benefit of everyone.

We do this by:

  • Researching and recording in our Inventory the history of green spaces across the capital.  We make this information publicly available for free on this website.
  • Campaigning and making comments to ensure the interests of historic green spaces are fully accounted for in the planning process.
  • Running events, including walks and talks for our members, and Open Garden Squares Weekend – a major annual celebration of London’s hidden green spaces that generates the vital funds we rely on the rest of the year.
