Open Garden Squares WeekendDuring the Open Garden Squares Weekend, which takes place across 27 London boroughs, take a peek behind the gates of London’s private gardens and discover hidden grassy gems.

 

In 2017, participating green spaces include the garden of 10 Downing Street, home of the British prime minister; the Royal College of Physicians’ Medicinal Garden; Belgrave Square, a private garden surrounded by grand mansions; the garden of Trumpeters’ House, built on the site of the former Richmond Palace; Crossrail Place Roof Garden in Canary Wharf; and the gated community garden at Tate Modern.

 

More than 200 London gardens, from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental, are opened up to the public for one weekend every year. Venture into private gardens, roof gardens and community allotments, as well as gardens belonging to historic buildings, museums, churches and universities.

 

Many of the public gardens provide guided walks, as well as music, family entertainment, art activities and food and drink stalls during the weekend.
The event will take place next month on June 17th-18th.
