This garden was planted about a century ago in the beautiful Kurseong valley. In the year 1927 the garden got its unique name 'Margaret's Hope' by its owner Mr. Cruikshank named after his daughter Margaret who was very attached with the beauty of this garden. She promised to return while leaving for England but never did, she died during her journey on the ship. The aggrieved parents named the garden after her name, though the former name of the garden was Bara- Ring tong.
The sections of the gardens have China bushes which yields the best Darjeeling Tea. Margret's Hope has rightfully earned the badge of being one of the best Darjeeling Tea brands among Darjeeling Tea connoisseurs, it is a feat that few gardens can claim. Margaret's Hope tea has a loyal client list globally.
