On the edge of the Meon Valley at the centre of the Winchester/Portsmouth/Southampton triangle, our delightful village will once again open many of its gardens to visitors. The gardens vary from small intimate village gardens to large country house gardens. They have emerged from the snow and ice and are now bursting into life ready to welcome you. Amongst our old favourites we have one or two that have not opened recently and all have, of course, changed as the years have passed. Once again The Meon Valley Lions have loaned their minibus so we can offer free transport between the gardens. However, many of the gardens are within easy walking distance of the village centre. All could be visited with a round trip of 4 miles starting and ending at The Paterson Centre, where you will find our refreshment team selling teas and coffees as well as delicious homemade cakes. There will be plants for sale and a plant creche so there is no need to tote your purchases around - just hand them to the minibus driver and collect them when you go home. Our gardens will also be opening on June 30th and July 1st.
12:30pm onwards from The Paterson Centre, SO32 2PA
Day ticket £6, cost includes parking and the use of the hop-on-hop-off minibus. Free entry for accompanied children (15 years and under).
