Visit our Garden

Hidden away behind the Museum is our really lovely Garden. Reminiscent for herb gardens of the Elizabethan period, this is a wonderful space to take a break or step away from town’s bustle.


Tended by the wonderful volunteers from Totnes Gardens, this is a fantastic place to come and enjoy nature.
