Garden MuseumSituated in the restored church of St Mary-at-Lambeth, adjacent to Lambeth Palace on the banks of the River Thames, the Garden Museum provides an insight into the history and development of gardens and gardening in the UK. The museum houses one of the finest public displays of garden tools and garden related artefacts and curiosities in the country, as well as an intriguing collection of garden related ephemera. In addition, a beautiful reproduction 17th century garden filled with flowers and shrubs of the period has been created in St Mary's graveyard around the tombs of famous 17th century plant hunters, the John Tradescants, (father and son), and Captain William Bligh of the 'Bounty'.
