The Garden

A two-acre site surrounding a historic Georgian house in the centre of Dulwich, Bell House gardens comprise lawns and mature herbaceous borders, a woodland walk, rose garden, front lawns and ha-ha and the original walled garden. The walled garden is currently being redeveloped into a working kitchen garden. There are vegetable and herb beds, cutting beds for flowers and growing plants for the garden as well as a beehive and a mature flower garden. Plans are afoot to plant a vineyard and an orchard too. The gardens are run and maintained by kind-hearted volunteers.
