Have you ever wondered what’s behind those hedges and locked gates that keep riff-raff out of the many private garden squares in London? If so, then this special weekend is what you’ve been waiting for — they will be open to the public — for a cost of only £10 per ticket.
Here’s an amazing list of over 200 of them spread across all 27 boroughs of London: http://www.opensquares.org/list.php. For each park there are buttons to click to get to a map showing the park’s location, a description and photos of the park, and list of the park’s facilities.

The Dull Men’s Club wish to point out, as we like to measure things, that not all of these ‘garden squares’ really square. Many are rectangles. And there is at least one oval. There’s even a trapezoid.
