The Swiss Garden at Old Warden is open for the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday, April 24, from 9.30am until 5pm.

This enchanting garden was created in the Swiss Picturesque style for the 3rd Lord Ongley in the early 19th century and reopened in July 2014 after a major HLF-funded restoration.

Serpentine paths lead to cleverly contrived vistas, many of which focus on the thatched Swiss Cottage. Beautiful wrought-iron bridges, ponds and sweeping lawns greet visitors.

The Shuttleworth Restaurant will be open all day.
