Have you ever wondered what’s behind the hedges and locked gates surrounding the 117 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 — ticket prices from £7 to £20.

Here’s the amazing list of 117 gardens spread across all 27 boroughs of London: https://londongardenstrust.org/log2023/gardens-list.html

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