London Parks & Gardens Trust aims to increase knowledge and appreciation of parks, squares, community gardens, cemeteries, churchyards – all those places that form London's open space network.
Trust members – amateurs and professionals – provide and enjoy lectures, walks, day trips, children's programmes, a newsletter and journal, research and an inventory of historic green spaces.
Our biggest event of the year is the Open Garden Squares Weekend (17th and 18th June) when more than 230 private, secret and little known gardens open across 27 London boroughs open for 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. One ticket gives access to numerous gardens across the weekend.
Working with GreenPlantSwap, we have created 17 area-by-area event posts for users of this site - see the posts and areas map on this page.
We operate from the picturesque Duck Island Cottage in St James's Park (pictured), mostly Tuesdays to Thursdays each week.
