Welcome to the Oxfordshire Gardens Trust

A friendly membership organisation for people who love Oxfordshire’s gardens and designed landscapes

Oxfordshire Gardens Trust is all about exploring and celebrating the wonderful parks and gardens in the county, both large and small, public and private, historic and contemporary. Join us to learn about them, their history and the challenge of caring for them in the 21st century. We have a fascinating programme of activities throughout the year, including lectures on a wide range of topics and guided visits to parks and gardens, often private and only accessible by special arrangement. Membership is a great opportunity to find out more and of course to make new friends.
