Went to this today and came away with a bagful of second hand books and some excellent plants, all for a few quid. As always at this time of year the gardens looked fabulous and everything smelt wonderful after the rain. Can't believe I live near such a gorgeous place.

Yes I agree Roz wonderful place.
There was one unsavoury incident about 10.50 when an over eager punter started handing the nic nacs. The Gentleman from Horniman's Friends asked the lady ( I use the word loosely )to wait until 11.00 , then her husband , remonstrated that he should F off and leave his wife alone.
Why do we have such unsavoury people attending such events. Cannot they stick to Lidl's

Glad all you people from the wrong side of the tracks appreciated visiting Horniman Heights, although I am always relieved when you go back North down the hill (particularly the aforementioned charming couple).

Considering the weather was so awful a good turn out - it all looked very gentrified and I did not try to identify anyone from this site.

I would imagine that if someone was offensive as reported that that Park had the right to object them. BD tried this in the Peckham 6 when a couple decided to have a loud conversation and then became aggressive when I suggested that they retired to the pub. Staff were quite obliging.
