Open Squares Weekend Coming Up Fast! June 8th & 9th All Over London

AgaKhan 1 - Open Squares Weekend  Coming Up Fast!

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.

For example most of the gardens you can visit during Open Garden Squares Weekend 2019 are normally closed to the public, and offer exclusive access for ticket holders.

However, alongside these private spaces, you can also visit six ‘star’ community gardens, which open to the public more frequently but which showcase how we can all work together to create and nurture unusual local green spaces.

See the What’s On page  for a full list of activities.

Please note that Children 12 years and under, accompanying an Adult Ticket holder, are free. Carers accompanying an adult ticket holder are also free. If you fulfil one of these criteria, then please apply via email.
