Fast becoming an essential date in the London summer diary, Open Garden Squares Weekend returns on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 June 2014.

In the region of 200 gardens, many private and hidden, will once again throw open their gates and offer Londoners and visitors the chance to explore.

The gardens, located across 27 London boroughs, range from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental.

Gardens of all types

Hidden and unusual gardens will open up for the weekend. These include classic London square gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, urban wildlife and ecology centres. As well as the gardens of historic buildings, institutions, restaurants, schools and shops.

Established in 1998, Open Garden Squares Weekend takes place annually. It is the London Parks & Gardens Trust’s highest profile event. It aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of London’s green, open space network.

The Weekend is again presented in association with the National Trust.
