More than 100 normally private gardens across London will open their doors to the public next month. This is London Square Open Gardens Weekend, now for the 22nd time, after a hiatus due to the pandemic, showcasing a range of green spaces from historic and traditional to new and experimental.
It gets its name from the many private garden squares in the more upscale areas of London that are normally only open to residents but open to everyone for a weekend. In addition, they add many other private and corporate gardens that are not normally visited.
It’s a bit like Open House Weekend, but for plants instead of buildings.
This year the London Square Open Gardens Weekend will take place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June 2022, and a standard weekend ticket gives access to gardens on both days (excluding balloted gardens), but please note that individual gardens may only be open on have one day or shorter opening hours. Those details will be confirmed closer to the date.
This year’s guide will be available online and in a downloadable format that can also be printed.
- Weekend tickets for adults £20
- Students £15
