It’s 75 years since the Messel family’s dream house in the country was almost destroyed by a catastrophic fire. Visit our new exhibition to find out how the family set about turning tragedy to opportunity, focusing again on nurturing the garden with the romantic ruins at its heart. Their legacy was one of hope, experimentation and creativity, still evident today in the stunning Grade II* listed garden displaying one of the most significant plant collections in the UK. 

This is the first time the gallery has opened in almost two years.
