About

Take a peek behind the gates of London's private gardens and discover more than 100 grassy gems during the Open Garden Squares Weekend.

Venture into private gardens, roof gardens and community allotments, as well as gardens belonging to historic buildings, museums, churches and universities as they open to the public for one special weekend. 

Flowers can be seen through a garden gate that sits between pink and blue houses.

In previous years, participating green spaces have included the garden of 10 Downing Street, home of the British prime minister; the Royal College of Physicians' Medicinal Garden; the gardens of the William Morris Society; a secret garden next to Shakespeare’s Globe at 49 Bankside; and the gated community garden at Tate Modern.

Many of the public gardens provide guided walks, interesting talks and bike tours, as well as entertainment and food stalls during the weekend.
