For one very special weekend in June, London's hidden green spaces open their gates for public enjoyment and discovery.
With the purchase of a Weekend ticket, you can explore a huge variety of gardens which are usually closed to the public - and enjoy a host of activities and experiences for all the family.
Open Garden Squares Weekend highlights some of the best gardens and green spaces that make up the rich tapestry of London’s green infrastructure, but there are many others – just as valuable to their communities – which are in decline or under threat of development. Funds raised during OGSW mean that the London Parks and Gardens Trust can continue its work to protect them.
Open Garden Squares Weekend 2019 takes place on 8 and 9 June. Check these pages nearer the time for the latest updates.
Read how it all began.
The London Parks and Gardens Trust aims to cultivate knowledge and appreciation of London’s rich green infrastructure, and the people who care for it. Through our activities and events, including our flagship Open Garden Squares Weekend, we celebrate the beauty, ecology and value of London’s parks, squares and gardens, and help protect them from threats and decline.
To do this, we rely on contributions, grants, sponsorship, subscriptions and bequests. If you value our work, please make a donation on line (or contact us directly to discuss larger donations). All donations will be gratefully received, and all funds will be dedicated to the Trust’s aims and objectives.
