GREEN SQUARES AND SECRET GARDENS 2018

 

The gardens and squares will open this year on 9th & 10th JUNE 2018.

 

All indications are that we will welcome even more people visiting the gardens in 2018.

 

Tickets will once again be sold outside the Arch House Cafe in Clifton village as well as in some gardens on the day. Apart from the open gardens, the Tree Trail in St Andrew’s and the ‘Points of Interest’ leaflet will also be repeated with the addition of another tree trail from a contributor in West Mall complete with it's own map. There will also be a new, easy-to-read map in response to the feedback from last year's visitors.

 

Several gardens will offer entertainment as well as refreshments with live music, history stands, plant sales and more and we will be welcoming a few new gardens too.

 

The ticket price this year is £5.00 per person for the two days. (Under 16 free). Groups of 8 visitors or more are able to buy tickets in advance at a discounted price of £3.00 per person. You will find full details on the TICKETS page by clicking the link on the tool bar above.
