More than 200 London gardens to open to public for weekend
Hidden and little-known gardens will be thrown open to the public next weekend (June 14 and 15).
As part of the Open Garden Squares Weekend, people will have access to 218 historic, traditional, new and experimental gardens across the capital.
The weekend is in its 16th year and aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of London’s open spaces.
Among the highlights this year are the back garden of 10 Downing Street (entry by public ballot, see the website) and Charlton Manor Primary School’s kitchen and secret gardens which feature raised beds, a vegetable patch, fruit trees, vines, a greenhouse, pond, hide, chickens and a beehive.
Tickets - £10 in advance or £12 on the weekend – get you access to all gardens. National Trust members go half price and under 12s go free. Go to opensquares.org
