Open Garden Squares Weekend is an opportunity to feed your curiosity and 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, gardens belonging to historic buildings, institutions, cafés, schools and shops.
