Beautiful garden for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Ample parking and east access from road. Orchards & hot house nursery. Coffee shop & visitors centre. Beautiful old trees, sculptures & waterway. Calm & peaceful place to just sit in the sun.

We actually made it to this Garden today, having been promising to visit, for some time. Well worth the effort. Lots to see but not too rambling - enticing views. The succulents in the green houses were very varied and colourful plants still in flower. A cold day made much better, by a late lunch of tasty jacket potatoes served... More

This is such an interesting place to visit. Very calm and peaceful and full of interesting things to see. Great restaurant with great cake. You do have to pay to park now so beware.

Thanks for your lovely review. We’re very pleased you had a great time during your visit, enjoyed one of our delicious slices of cake and were able to relax and explore everything we have to offer!

I've lived in enfield most of my life, but until recently I had never visited Myddelton House. Free entry. Just pay for parking. Good plant shop. Cafe was average, not a huge choice and packet sandwiches...... could be a lot better.

Thanks for your review. We’re pleased you enjoyed your visit and had a good time exploring the gardens. We’re disappointed the food in the Bowles Tea Room didn’t quite meet your standards however because of the small size of the kitchen area we currently sell light lunches and hot and cold refreshments. We hope this will not stop you visiting... More

I love these delightful gardens, we often go for a stroll on a sunday afternoon and finish in the courtyard cafe where you get nice cake and tea/coffee. Every time we visit there is something new to see, with the changing of the seasons. Today there was the new Hosta bank and the pots had all been replanted. If you... More

Myddelton House gardens are operated by the Lea Valley Park authority, and open to the public for most of the year. If you can do so, it's worth visiting every few months, as the types of flowers and foliage are constantly changing with the seasons. Visiting is free, but you have to pay a couple of pounds for car-parking if... More
