Chipping Campden Open Gardens

15th & 16th June 2024

Chipping Campden Open Gardens weekend is a fabulous event, that usually takes place on the 3rd weekend in June, where you get to walk the historic and beautiful streets of Chipping Campden, admiring private gardens which are open to the public and some of their herbaceous borders.

During the weekend, visitors get to admire a collection of local gardens in and around the town.

Some of the formal gardens, characterized by geometric designs and manicured hedges, showcase the town’s historic grandeur.  The cottage gardens, bursting with vibrant blooms and meandering pathways, capture the rustic and picturesque charm of Chipping Campden.

Today, the gardens of Chipping Campden remain a cherished part of the town’s heritage, attracting visitors from near and far to enjoy their timeless beauty and historical significance.

Chipping Campden is a popular tourist destination in the North Cotswolds, known for its picturesque high street lined with traditional limestone cottages and historic buildings. Visitors can explore the town’s quaint shops, cafes, and galleries, or take in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

In the past, the Landmark Trust has opened up the grounds of the Old Campden House ruins, in Church Street, at the same time.  We hope that this may be the case again in the future.

Also in town, the Ernest Wilson Memorial Garden in the heart of Chipping Campden is a walled garden and a beautiful garden space with wonderful views of some of the plants he brought back from the Far East.

It is a wonderful opportunity for the town to display its wide range of Chipping Campden gardens, although the actual number may vary daily. Open over 2 days, you can visit for one day or take in all the gardens over the weekend.
