Luton Hoo Walled Garden 2016

Our season reopens at the beginning of May 2016 with our popular Open Wednesdays taking place from 1030-1530 each week until the end of September.

However there is plenty to keep us busy during the winter months we have illustrated talks available for groups in the comfort of a venue of your own choice topics covering a history of the garden, Hoo’s Farms, Hoo’s Who – 100 and 150 years ago and in WW1, and Lord Bute who built the Walled Garden in the 1760’s with landscape designed by Capability Brown.

2016 is the latter’s 300th anniversary and a Study Day is being planned on Wednesday April 6th which will reveal how our research has discovered details about the unusual design of the garden and the botanical collection which it contained.

Details of both talks and the study day can be found on our website here or by phoning 01582 721443.

Tours for the 2016 season can also be found on the website including a new one of the Victorian Farm Buildings.
