This small museum was founded in 1977 next to the church of St. Mary's. Visit the museum to discover the history of gardening through a collection of tools, pictures, and books. It also contains the enigmatic tomb of John Tradescant, the first great gardener, and plant-hunter in British history.
The museum was reopened after a reconstruction in spring 2017 and visitors can now climb the medieval tower and enjoy views across the Thames to Westminster.
