Letchworth Open Gardens

Sunday 30th June 

11am – 5pm

There will be 23 gardens open to visitors across the world's first Garden City , covering every aspect of gardening and size of garden. Some are formal, others cottage style, some are set around 1905 cottages and one predates the Garden City by 400 years!

There will be plant sales, refreshments and "artists in residence" at various gardens. 

  • The entry passport grants entrance to all the gardens. Accompanied children 16 and under enter free. 

  • The entry passport (Price £10) will be on sale from May 23rd at David's Bookshop (14 Eastcheap, Letchworth) (cash only) or Bickerdikes Garden Centre (Norton).

  • On Sunday June 30th entry passports can be bought from any garden at £10.00 (cash at any garden and by contactless at selected gardens - see garden listings). 

  • We will not be doing on line sales of tickets this year - apologies!

  • St Christopher School and the Garden House Hospice are providing a free park and ride bus service between the gardens. Parking will be available at the Arena Car Park in the centre of town, SG6 3BY, where the buses will pick up from. The buses will stop close to each garden so you can hop on or off wherever you like - see map tab above and signage on day for details. There should be a bus every half hour at a garden but it's often difficult to maintain schedule due to some narrow roads! These are volunteer drivers so please be extra nice to them!!

  • The location of gardens and the full bus route are shown at the menu tab above. Brief details of all the gardens open are also available from the menu above. All these details are also printed on the paper programme, however if there are any changes after the printing of the paper passports, the changes will only be reflected on this website.

  • Dogs are not allowed into the gardens, except by permission of the owner. Guide dogs are permitted. 

  • No Liability accepted—you participate at your own risk. Participation in Letchworth Open Gardens and the use of all related facilities and equipment is conditional upon you accepting that you do so entirely at your own risk.
