The Walled Gardens

A hidden gem in Harlow, the Walled Gardens are set in two acres of green space and divided into three historical gardens. The Unusual Fruit Garden, home to many fruits not commonly grown in public spaces such as quinces, medlars and figs. The 17th Century Garden, a parterre that can be seen from a viewing platform. The Peace Garden, divided into four main areas with a new discovery around every corner; a unique rose planting scheme, a modern cottage garden, a beautiful herbaceous border, full of stunning perennials, and a serene seating area perfect for a picnic.

Harlow’s Sculpture town trail continues through the gardens and the Museum, in addition the intriguing giant copper Still draws admiration, an original from the Gilbey gin factory in Harlow.

We welcome dogs on leads and have disabled restroom facilities. The gardens are suitable for visitors in wheelchairs; please note some pathways in the gardens are shingle surfaced so take extra care.
