Discover London's secret gardens over this weekend of viewings and openings

In 2016 more than 200 gardens will unlock their gates for a weekend to take part in this annual event, held in association with the National Trust. Spanning 27 boroughs, the gardens take in all sorts of spaces, from traditional squares to roof terraces and allotments, as well as gardens belonging to historic buildings, schools, shops and cafes. 138 of the gardens taking part this year are normally closed to the public. A range of walking and cycle tours, special garden tours, family activities, art trails and poetry events will be announced closer to the weekend.

Some participating venues may only be accessed when booked onto a free tour – snap up your place when booking your weekend ticket to make sure you don't miss out. Please note: one ticket allows entry to all venues over the weekend.

Over 200 gardens across 27 London boroughs all for a recession-beating £10?? What's not to love! A great annual event . . . Gardens in skips, on barges, rooftops, at restaurants, historic buildings, artists studios and galleries as well as community gardens, traditional squares - and lots more. Count me in . . .

Nice picture of my barge! Do come on down to Garden Barge Square for tea and home baked goodies in support of the RNLI.
