Flowers, falconry and families! Whether you want to relax with a picnic, take a tour with the Head Gardener or build a bug house, we’ve got you covered.
London Square Open Gardens Weekend is an opportunity for the public to explore over 100 unique and hidden green spaces including historic, traditional, contemporary and experimental gardens across the capital. Following the success of the Inn’s participation in 2022, we are delighted to once again be taking part in 2023.
A wide variety of activities will be on offer to visitors of all ages, as well as the opportunity to stroll through and enjoy the gardens. From falconry displays, strolling players and community choirs, to bug house building, games on the lawn and tours with the Head Gardener – there is something for everyone to enjoy. A delicious range of food and drink will be for sale during the day. Picnics are also permitted.
