The Women of Abney Park

Join your guides, Romany and Sam, as we pay homage to the fearless women interred in Abney Park. Pioneers who tore up the rule books and whose stories are inspiring and poignant. The nurse whose disregard of bureaucracy invoked the wrath of Florence Nightingale; the Suffragette incarcerated in Holloway Prison; and the aeronaut who risked life and limb navigating her hot air balloon.

The Original Trees of Abney Park

Abney Park's 13 hectares of woodland is home to around 200 'old' trees. The site's history as a woodland started in 1840 when it was planted as an exotic arboretum by the famous Victorian horticulturalists the Loddiges. Today there are still some specimens that remain from that planting. Join Russell Miller to learn more about the original Loddiges Trees of Abney Park.
