Event Details

Please find the guided walks first on this page, then scroll further down the page for the special bookable tours.

Please note you will need to book OGSW Weekend tickets before buying walks and tours.

Our guided walks are a great way both to visit some of the popular gardens and to discover the location of some of London's secret gardens, as you explore the city's landscape more widely. Walks will be led by experienced and friendly London tour guides from the City of London, Camden and Westminster Guiding Associations.

Some unique garden experiences are only available through bookable tours and these can be booked through this page.

Due to the high demand for tours and walks, we are asking for a non-refundable charge of £3 to secure your place on your chosen activity.  

Nearer the time of the event we will send you an email with the details of the meeting point to start your booked walk or tour and all other important details.

Please see www.opensquares.org for further details.
