Open Garden Squares Weekend
Sunday 12 June, 10am-5pm
This is the one weekend (11-12 June) in the year when you can visit gardens in London not usually open to the public, enjoy special activities in gardens and discover gardens you didn't know existed. 214 gardens are taking part in the 2011 weekend, including 31 which are new this year.
Chiswick House and Gardens will be opening the walled gardens on Sunday 12 June. Come along and see how the restoration work is going with our newly planted fruit trees and fruit and vegetable garden. We are also trialling a new raised bed system.
- Special tours of the restored walled gardens and conservatory at 11am and 2pm
- Children's art, entertainment and gardening activities
- Tea and cakes for sale
In addition explore the history of Chiswick House and its links to the nearby Sutton Court with local historian James Wisdom. In the late 17th century Lord Fauconberg laid out a grand garden and park around Sutton Court. Lord Burlington bought the estate in the 18th century to add to his gardens at Chiswick House. Traces of this lost landscape can still be seen today. Tour begins at Sutton Court at 2pm and makes its way to the Walled Gardens at Chiswick House. See the entry for Sutton Court via the link on the right.
One ticket allows entry to all gardens over the entire weekend.
Ticket prices will be £7.50 in advance and £10 if bought during the weekend. Children under 12 are free.
A guidebook is supplied with each order for tickets.
Tickets are available from the Capital Gardens website (link on right).
