About Open Garden Squares Weekend
Open Garden Squares Weekend is a two-day event, where private gardens throughout London welcome the public. Gardens range from historical private squares to contemporary roof gardens, prisons and barges.

We will be visiting five garden squares on Saturday, all of which are maintained by the residents who live in the houses surrounding them.

We will be walking about 2 miles in total and stopping for about 30 minutes in each square.  It will just be a relaxing walk between the gardens and won't be guided.

Most of the garden squares have refreshments and toilets.

The gardens we will be visiting are:

- The Wildlife Garden at the NHM
- Cornwall Gardens
- Lexham Gardens
- Nevern Square
- Earls Court Square

We have a 10% discount for tickets bought in advance for Open Garden Squares weekend, which works out at £9 per person, which gives you access to all the squares across both days.

You can purchase your ticket here...  (you can only buy a ticket online until Friday at midnight, after that you will have to buy them on entry to the first garden).

- then click the quantity of tickets you require in the 'Adult weekend advance purchase'

- click on the 'Enter promotional code' and put in the code:  CultGSW

- click on 'Order Now' and pay

You will need to show your ticket each time we visit a garden square.

Lookout for the sign at the station:

If you can't see us, please call.

    Very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Good company and (mostly) fine weather (little known fact that Robert also organises the weather). Not to mention tea, cakes, wine and music.

    Great stuff! The Jazz & Wine garden was definitely one of the best gardens I've ever seen :)) I wonder if it was a coincidence that by the time we were there, the mayor held speech... Thanks for the great event Robert!

    On Saturday at 1pm, if you are in Central London, have a lookout for the Red Arrows flying over as part of the Queen's birthday celebrations.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
