For one weekend this June, there's no need to peek through the wrought iron railings or scale the fence as London's secret gardens are officially unlocking their gates to the public. On Sat June 14 and Sun June 15, Open Garden Squares Weekend invites visitors to discover, wander and admire some the capital's most hidden and private green spaces. Two hundred gardens, allotments and roof terraces are on show this year, including Regent's Park Allotment, Kensington Square and Holland House. Even Number 10 Downing Street are showing off their al fresco area this June.
