Activity

We are exploring some hidden parts of London to celebrate Open Gardens Squares Weekend on our 7 mile leisurely walk. The Open Gardens Weekend is the rare opportunity to explore over 230 private, secret and little-known gardens across 27 London boroughs over one very special weekend. Gardens range from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental, and include private gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, and gardens belonging to historic buildings, institutions, cafés, schools and shops. One ticket gives access to numerous gardens across the weekend. We will start the tour in the Earls Court area. There are several gardens open within a few minutes walk. Some of the gardens feature live music plus teas and homemade cakes. We will continue on to Chelsea and Belgravia to explore more secret gardens. Route can be adapted on the day as we see fit.
