Open Gardens weekend, Campden.This is an annual event held over a weekend every June for the last 35 years and has proved extremely popular with visitors and locals alike. it is also an opportunity to show case our beautiful town.
There always around 30 gardens, large and small, open over the 2 days for people to enjoy. You can visit for just one day or stay over and take in all the gardens. The gardens will be open both days from 2pm to 6pm.Tickets are available at each garden or at the local tourist information centre in the High St opposite the Market Hall.
In addition to the delightful and varied gardens, you can enjoy tea and cake, served throughout the day, at various locations. There is also an opport5unity to purchase plants you may have seen growing. Many of the gardens invite you to just sit and relax and admire the surroundings.
The weekend is a means to raise funds for a very worthwhile local charity, Campden Home Nursing Trust, which provides palliative care for the terminally ill who wish to be cared for at home. There is no charge to any family for the care provided.
