For the FIRST time, special group rates will be offered for the annual and extremely popular Open Garden Squares Weekend, which is held throughout London every June.
The 2012 weekend will take place immediately after the extended Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday on Saturday and Sunday, June 9 & 10, 2012. In 2011, more than 210 gardens participated in the weekend with 31 taking part for the first time and 117 private gardens opening exclusively for the event.
Group benefits include:
One ticket allows entry to all venues over the entire weekend. Tickets bought in advance cost just £9 and £12 during the weekend (Discounted rates for groups). Tickets go on sale in late spring.
