Open Gardens Squares Weekend

Description

Established in 1998, Open Garden Squares Weekend takes place annually in June and is the London Parks & Gardens Trust’s highest profile event, underpinned by the Trust’s aim of increasing knowledge and the appreciation of London’s green, open space network.

Over 200 hidden, private, secret and little-known gardens open their gates to the public across 27 London boroughs. Gardens range from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental, including London squares, private gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, urban farms, ecology centres, pop-up gardens, pocket parks, gardens belonging to historic buildings, institutions, cafes, schools and shops.

The Weekend includes cycle and walking tours, and many gardens also host family-friendly activities, plant sales and pop-up events.

2015 Weekend tickets: £10 in advance and £12 over the Weekend. Under 12s go free. National Trust members get 25% discount.
