Myddelton House Gardens

Pre-booked visits

We're pleased to announce we're reopening for pre-booked visits from 10 August. 
Like a many public gardens in the UK, we're running two hour sessions for visitors to help manage the number of people in the gardens and to give everyone the time and space to enjoy the beauty around them.
Sessions are free to book online and are available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:00 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 16:00.  
You can also pay for car parking online at the time of booking your session. The contributions raised from car parking help continue the legacy of E A Bowles and keep the gardens in the best condition for our wonderful visitors.

An enchanting place to visit at any time of year

Edward Augustus Bowles

Myddelton House Gardens were once home to Edward Augustus Bowles, one of Britain’s most famous self-taught gardeners, artists and expert botanists. Nestled in the heart of Enfield, the eight acre grounds play host to a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers as well as an extensive heritage kitchen garden and cut flower beds. 

Bowles dedicated his life to maintaining the gardens at Myddelton House often bringing back unusual plants from his travels. An example of this today is in the ‘Lunatic Asylum’ beds, where plants with contorted stems and foliage can be found.

The gardens are a treasure trove of hidden oddities and the beautifully reconstructed Victorian Glasshouse is no exception. With four climatic zones, you will  find exotic plants from around the world.. The sunken glasshouse is perfect for harvesting fruits that thrive on high humidity. You can visit some of the sections today and discover what’s growing.

The gardens are a treasure trove of hidden gems and the beautifully reconstructed Victorian Glasshouse is no exception. With four climatic zones, you will find exotic plants from around the world ranging from cacti which thrive on dry arid conditions to air plants which obtain all of their nutrients from water vapour in the air.
