Details

As part of the Richmond Heritage Festival 2018, "Know Your Place", the Archives team will show treasures from our Archives and talk about the Gardens' history. From our directors to our plant packers, many fascinating stories can be found amongst our collections relating to our staff. There will be the opportunity to see rare maps of the Gardens, letters from Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker papers, diaries relating to our plant hunters, historic photographs and many other rare and interesting items. At the end of the talk, there will be the chance to see the Library, Art & Archives display in our Wolfson Display space in the Reading Room.
