London Open Gardens - 8 & 9 June 2024

Tickets for London Open Gardens 2024 are on sale now!

Celebrate 25 years of unique public access to over 100 secret or usually-closed gardens.

We welcome you to discover the history of London’s parks and gardens through our Inventory. Through our regular series of talks and our publications, you can also learn about the people that have shaped London’s parks and gardens and ongoing management challenges.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer, such as researching and recording, or helping to campaign to protect London’s precious landscapes.

From the Inventory this month:

This month’s inventory features The Hoxton Trust Community Garden opening for London Open Gardens 2024.

The Hoxton Trust Community Garden was laid out by the Hoxton Trust in the early 1980s, funded by Hackney Council. It contains the 19th century cupola from the old Hackney Work House at Homerton. It will be open for LOG 2024 both Saturday and Sunday 10:00–18:00. Cyanotype workshop sessions will run throughout the weekend with plant sale and a ceramics/clay-making drop-in workshop run by Troy Town ceramics. 

Find out more about Hoxton Trust Community Garden in our Inventory, where you can browse 2,500 fascinating sites across the capital.
