About Syon Park » The Gardens and Arboretum
The Gardens and Arboretum
Syon has a remarkable 600 years of garden history spanning from the gardens of the Abbey, where the priest Richard Whitford argued with Thomas Cromwell’s agents, through the sixteenth century plant collection of William Turner, the formality of the seventeenth century, the rise of the Brownian landscape in the eighteenth century, the great plant collection of the nineteenth century through to the extraordinary rise in interest in domestic gardening in the 1960s. In the twenty first century, the landscape is emblematic of Syon, an extraordinary and multi-layered survival of great richness.
