Historic Gardens Weekend

Weald & Downland Living Museum

Route

Come and find out about the Museum’s period gardens! Discover the herbs, vegetables and flowers that rural households would have grown and used from Tudor times right up to the Victorian era.

Enjoy displays, guided walks and talks, plus chat to our gardening team and see the Museum’s herbarium.

Find out how we use the plants grown in the Museum’s gardens for medicinal and culinary purposes, as well as natural dyeing. You can also learn how important gardens were to the ordinary working rural people of the past and how they would have been managed.

This event is part of our Rural Life Weekends programme, which also includes Scything, Charcoal and Woodyard, Home, Springtime and Harvest.
