Explore the 1898, late Victorian London Farm House that has been fully restored and furnished to illustrate rural life in Richmond between 1890 and 1920. London Heritage Farm is one of the earliest farm sites in Richmond. Charles and Henrietta London built a small house on site in 1898 and then added to it in 1906. The farm produced dairy products, oats, wheat barley, fruit from an orchard and vegetables. This riverfront land became known as London’s landing and a wharf was built on the property to provide greater access to the river to send farm products to market. Today visitors can also enjoy beautiful heritage perennial flowers, a kitchen and herb garden, an outside exhibit of large, antique farm equipment and chickens.

Originally established in 1916 as part of the Federal Agricultural Research Station, now the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, the 6 hectare, 15-acre Summerland Ornamental Gardens expanse was designed to help new residents, many from the U.K. and other rainy climates, choose ornamental plants for their gardens that would be suitable for the dry Okanagan climate. In collaboration with Agriculture Canada, the site is maintained with help from the non-profit society, the Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens. As you stroll through the Gardens you will have views of Okanagan Lake, Giant’s Head Mountain and the Trout Creek Trestle railroad bridge, an outstanding engineering feat constructed for the Kettle Valley Railway.
