Visit Greenwich's Secret Gardens This Weekend

For anyone into gardens this should prove to be one of their most anticipated dates ever. Secret gardens are set to open their gates to the public for the 10th year of the Open Garden Squares Weekend. Around 170 gardens across London will be open on Saturday & Sunday, June 7 & 8 (120 of them are not usually open to the public and range from private residential squares to allotments and prisons).

There will be two Greenwich Gardens to explore; The Charlton House Walled Gardens will be open on both days from 10am - 2pm. Made up of the Peace Garden, Pond Garden and Sensory Garden, the open spaces form part of the grounds for the landmark Jacobean mansion house. There will be children's workshop, live music and teas.

The other is The Environmental Curriculum Service and The Growing Schools Garden at 77 Bexley Road, Eltham which is open on Saturday from 10am to 4pm. There are ponds, streams, farm animals, beehives, and others.
