Alexandra Palace Garden Centre

Alexandra Palace is our garden centre in Muswell Hill, North West London.This Centre on the southern side of Alexandra Park is famous for its garden plants, specialising in a large variety of climbing plants including Clematis, Roses and Jasmine. There are specimen plants such as Bamboos, and especially in the spring, Magnolias. Alexandra Palace is one of the largest garden centres in North West London for garden furniture and horticultural sundries. Our cafe has a unique rooftop terrace which is a real suntrap in summer with views over the Centre where you can plan your purchases or take a breather before your planting commences.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

 We are very aware that older people love their gardens and we would like to ensure our centre is as welcoming and accessible to as many people as possible including those living with dementia.  We are committed to ensuring our staff are Dementia Friends and will endeavour to make the environment of the centre more dementia friendly by improving layout, signage, etc. 

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

There is only a certain amount that can be done with the physical environment of the centre to improve access.
