Natural History Museum Gardens Opening

Free

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life in Natural History Museum gardens.

Follow the story of how life on Earth has changed over time in their new gardens, from the days of the dinosaurs through to today.

As you move through the gardens, follow in the footsteps of evolution. Along the way feel ancient fossils, spot a grazing Hypsilophodon and tread among the footprints of your oldest ancestors.

Then leave the past behind as you step into the present day. Into an urban world, but one that makes space for wildlife. As you explore our grassland, wetland and woodland habitats, experience how nature can thrive in urban spaces.

Sink into your surroundings and soak in the sights and sounds of nature as you discover the creatures that have made their homes here. Take time to tune into the birds singing in the trees, to watch the ripples dance across our pond and to contemplate a future that works for people and the planet.
