Opened in 1995 as the Natural History Museum’s first living and working exhibition, the Wildlife Garden reveals a range of British lowland habitats, including deciduous woodland, chalk meadow, heathland, reedbed and ponds.
Set in the museum grounds, the garden is also used by schools and scientists. It is a haven for over 2,200 British plant and animal species, demonstrating the potential for wildlife conservation in the inner city. Escape the city and wander through the tranquil habitats of the garden for free.
