London Parks & Gardens is delighted to launch pre-Christmas ticket sales for London Open Gardens 2024, celebrating 25 years of unique public access to over 100 secret or usually-closed special gardens for one special summer weekend.
Tickets are available for the special pre-Christmas adult price of just £15 for the whole weekend (saving 30%). They could be the perfect Christmas present for family and friends!
Participating gardens will be announced early next year.
This much-loved event began with volunteers’ passion to open up iconic but locked London Squares in the west, and has grown to embrace gardens across central London; from exquisite roof spaces owned by city banks, to historic institutions, community allotments and even the Prime Minister’s Downing St garden in previous years.
Around 40,000 garden visits each year provide pleasure and inspiration to ticketholders from London and far afield, celebrating London’s status as a park city. All proceeds support LPG’s essential year-round work to cherish and protect city greenspaces, and profits are shared with the community gardens which open.
LOG Chair Nathan Oley commented: “We’re delighted that over 100 special spaces will open for our unique weekend next June. As well as welcoming back many familiar favourites, we will be joined by exciting new spaces and events across the city. Green spaces are places of pleasure and refreshment, but also play a crucial part in responding to the climate emergency and loss of wildlife. With free access for children, we hope visitors of all ages will be inspired to keep our city green!”
We depend on volunteers to run this outdoor event; your support helps us raise funds to protect some of London’s most valuable green spaces.
We were delighted that the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association (MPGA) once again supported London Open Gardens in 2023. Visit the MPGA website to find out more about the Association, its programmes and the grants it gives.
