Manchester Art Gallery’s Urban Garden

Following the success of The Lost Gardens of Manchester, we are keeping an urban garden at the Gallery for our visitors, and our bees who live on the Gallery’s roof.

The National Trust, who designed and planted the original garden, have now handed over a legacy garden which will be maintained by gallery staff and volunteers, whilst we work on a permanent proposition with Manchester City Council and Historic England for the greening of the exterior of the gallery.

We would like to thank the National Trust for the wonderful partnership during this time and all the volunteers who have helped to make both the Snowdrop and Lost Gardens installations so inspiring and such a success.
