The National Trust is inviting visitors to enjoy and explore the unique National Trust gardens of seven of its London properties as part of Open Garden Squares Weekend 2015. This annual event is organised by the London Parks & Gardens Trust, who work to protect and promote London’s green open spaces.

Discover some wonderful gardens in London that are usually not publicly accessible during the excellent Open Garden Squares Weekend. Some 224 gardens across 27 London boroughs will be opening their gates on 13 and 14 June. Amazingly the weekend is entirely run by volunteers, and aims to increase awareness and appreciation of London’s green and open spaces and provide fresh inspiration for gardeners.

The event is also supported by the National Trust. Right across London National Trust will be welcoming visitors into their gardens where they can discover the history, stories and character of these fine and exquisite working green spaces. Garden enthusiasts will be able to visit the peaceful walled garden at Thomas Carlyle’s House in the heart of old Chelsea, the formal gardens of Fenton House in Hampstead and Ham House in Richmond, and the extensive gardens at Osterley in Isleworth. Other National Trust properties taking part include William Morris’ garden and orchard at Red House in Bexleyheath, the well-preserved herb and walled gardens at Eastbury Manor House in Barking, and the delightful gardens at Rainham Hall.

Check out the Open Garden Squares Weekend website for gardens near you.
