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, reed bed and ponds.
An educational resource for visitors of all ages, the garden demonstrates the potential for wildlife conservation in the inner city. To date, around 3,000 species of plant and animal have been recorded by scientists and volunteers at the museum. Escape the city and wander through the tranquil habitats of the garden for free!
