Hidden away just behind the Spurs training ground Myddelton House isn't the easiest place to get to, but if you do have a car and fancy walking around a beautiful garden (the house itself is not open to the public) then it's worth a trip on a Sunday afternoon if you live in North London.
Owned by famous garden designer Edward Augustus Bowles from 1865 until his death in 1954, Myddelton House is part of the Lee Valley area and is set in 8 acres of grounds. All year round there is something to see from spring crocuses to summer iris. There is an impressive kitchen garden the produce from which is on sale in the house shop, a small cafe, green houses, a carp lake and even an alpine meadow and giant Redwood. Simply stunning, if you're into gardens it's a hidden gem and perfect for a day trip to explore the Lee Valley area.
