Attend one of our Third Saturday Garden Tours (April – October) to experience the beauty of Allerton’s formal gardens, while listening to the history behind their creation. You will learn about the history of the estate, which was created between 1899 and 1946 by Robert Allerton and John Gregg.

Garden tours start at 10am, and will meet on the Greenhouse Café patio. Tours typically last 45-60 minutes, and will continue in slight drizzle. In the case of lightening/thunder, the tour will be cancelled, and your ticket can be transferred to another tour date upon request.

General Admission: $5/person (Ages 5 & under are free.)

Find the map of the Formal Gardens here. (Please note the tour will not include all of the gardens.)

If you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate, please email Olivia at owarren@illinois.edu.
