Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace

The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace

The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Place was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge on 4th May.

Open daily for all the family

Set within King Henry V111’S former Tiltyard where the elaborate spectacle of the Tudor tournament played out , the new garden takes inspiration from the fairy- tale -like quality of the Tudor Palace. This summer the Magic Garden will host a series of evening talks with acclaimed historians , curators, gardeners and writers as they explore why our imaginations are compelled to the idyllic version of the garden.
