In May 2012 our new website, London Gardens Online www.londongardensonline.org.uk, was officially launched. The information is derived from the Inventory of London's Green Spaces of Local Historic Interest, one of the Trust's biggest projects. Over 2,500 spaces across Greater London have been researched for the Trust's Inventory, with the valuable participation of many people.
The aim is to appeal to a broad range of users - from casual garden visitors to local residents, local historians, students, schoolchildren and teachers, planning authorities, architects, landscape designers, estate agents as well as tourists and visitors to London.
The Inventory is constantly updated and extended by a team of volunteer researchers.
