Camden is home to some of London’s finest 18th Century Georgian squares, but don’t miss some 21st Century gems alongside these historical gardens. One of these – St Paul’s Woodland Garden – began development in 2018 and joins Open Gardens Weekend for the first time this year. Focusing on helping vulnerable people and those with disabilities, the garden team has regenerated a forgotten patch of land as a woodland edge.
