London Open Gardens


New spaces join old favourites for London Open Gardens this year, in support of the work of London Parks and Gardens (LPG).

Tickets on sale now

Weekend tickets give exclusive access to over 100 gardens not normally open to the public, on both Saturday on Sunday (a small number require pre-booking). Historic-themed guided tours, suggested walking routes and ever-popular cycling tours, taking in a selection of the gardens, will also be on offer. More details coming soon.

We are delighted that the garden at Number 10 Downing Street will be opening over the weekend for the first time since 2019, with visitors selected by public ballot to take part in a garden tour.

Use the garden selector to search for gardens based on their location, features, facilities and a range of other criteria. You can use the search tool to find family-friendly gardens, dog-friendly gardens, rooftop gardens or historic gardens, alongside a range of other themes.

A free printed guide will be available to collect in gardens (it will not be posted out) and will be available online six weeks in advance of the weekend so that you can plan your visit. The guide takes the form of an A5 (folding out to A2) map showing the location of the spaces opening during the weekend.


This year’s gardens

Explore over 100 unique and hidden green spaces which are not normally accessible to the public, including historic, traditional, contemporary and experimental gardens across the capital. These include formal squares and rooftop terraces with commanding city views, as well as community allotments and wildlife havens.

Seven new spaces open their gates for the first time this year, including:

  • the rewilded OmVed Gardens, Highgate, with its wild flower meadow and vegetable patches;
  • 245 Hammersmith Road, which offers ticket holders special access to spectacular views across the city from its terrace;
  • the stylish roof garden at 25 Cannon Street, next to St Paul’s Cathedral – a recently created jewel in the heart of London.

A further 20 gardens, including the 17th century Kitchen Garden at Chiswick House and Eversheds Sutherland Vegetable Garden, are being welcomed back after a hiatus.
