In an interview for the Daily Telegraph on Monday 28 December 2015, Jools Holland compares the BBC to “museums, royal parks and public swimming baths.” I think that’s a compliment.

Tours and events are being led and organised by the Brompton Cemetery Restoration Project team to show the suprising and fantastic history of the site and what the restoration project is set up to achieve. For more details of the tours andwhat is planned click here.

Our Activities

Guild members at our tour of Greenwich

From the start our members most wanted to be kept informed of news about The Royal Parks and to keep in touch with former colleagues and others associated with the parks. They all had one thing in common - a desire to keep the parks at the forefront of horticultural, landscape and cultural excellence. For some this would take the form of becoming a volunteer or assist The Royal Parks in its activities or perhaps supporting the apprenticeship scheme or maybe researching and recording the parks history and heritage or contributing to the newsletter. Others simply wanted to keep in touch through visits of interest whilst meeting members of the Guild and parks' staff.
