Open Garden Squares Weekend in London, England


One weekend every year many of the private garden squares of London, of which there are over 600, open their gates to anyone who wants a look.

Open Garden Squares weekend falls this year on June 11 and 12.

Mark your calendar.

Usually these private spaces are available only to keyholders, who are typically residents of surrounding buildings.

117 gardens are opening this year, several for the first time ever.

Admission is £5 ($9.35), which covers unlimited visits to all 117.


Tickets may be purchased at most garden gates or online at www.capitalgardens.co.uk.
