Thanks to Open Garden Squares Weekend, every June us Londoners get a flash of the capital's best green bits without, for once, the need to scale a fence or cro-bar wrought iron railings. Bacl for a 17th year, 2015's OGSW takes place over the weekend of Saturday June 13 – Sunday June 14.
We'll be updating this page with 2015's events as they're announced.
Gardens to visit on Saturday June 14
You can also buy discounted advanced tickets for the Open Garden Squares Weekend at the City Information Centre located south of St Paul's cathedral. And National Trust cardholders can buy them at half price.
Over 200 gardens across 27 London boroughs, all for a recession-beating £10 for the whole weekend?? 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 . . .
From Hyde Park to Hampstead Heath, we've got London's greatest green patches covered.
Escape the hustle and bustle and take in the splendour of nature at the city's prettiest public gardens.
Lidos, parks, al fresco dining – make the most of the great outdoors in the capital.
