STAA Talks & Tours

When you join a STAA heritage tour of St Anns Allotments you’ll be guided by our passionate volunteers around the largest and oldest Victorian detached town garden in the world. The site is Grade II* Listed by Historic England, and designated an Area of Importance for Nature Conservation.

On our 90-minute heritage tours, the pace is gentle but there is so much to see and hear. There are wonderful stories recounting the history, importance and development of this magnificent allotment garden as well as tales of mystery and murder.

You’ll visit our beautiful Heritage Garden with its important horticultural projects and stunning glasshouse as well as learning about our work within the community.

Tickets can be booked below. We’re running tours on the 2nd Saturday and the last Wednesday of each month.
