The May Balfour Garden


The garden is in Institute Road, Marlow, opposite the Library and close to the High Street. A ramp provides disabled access to the garden.

Please note: you may not use remote controlled vehicles (including drones) or metal detecting equipment on any Buckinghamshire Council open space in the Wycombe area.


This is an ornamental walled garden containing the impressive Akeler Sundial, created by the acclaimed sculptor Edwin Russell FRBS.

There is a splendid view of Marlow Place, at one time the Royal Military Academy, framed by annual bedding and mixed herbaceous borders.

The May Balfour garden is a quiet, peaceful garden, popular with office workers taking their lunch break.
