Open Gardens

From March until October, you can visit 200 gardens in England and Wales – including some never seen before by the public.

Keen gardeners share their passion, while helping people in crisis.

You can explore their gardens - and maybe get a cup of tea and slice of cake. Some gardens offer cream teas, light lunches, plant sales, treasure trails and more.
