The 18th-century poet William Cowper, who lived in this house, was a keen and innovative gardener, and even grew pineapples in a hot bed. The museum’s delightful flower garden is filled with a wide range of plants that were introduced to England before 1800, the year of Cowper’s death. There is also a Victorian-style kitchen garden planted with heritage varieties of fruit and vegetables.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
