This weekend is the annual open Squares and gardens event where 200 unusual or historic gems which you normally can't get into open their gates. The gardens are spread throughout inner and outer London so with my open garden guidebook and map I sorted out which gardens I could feasibly get around within 6 hours. Some were not worth a visit but others were a real treat to visit. My favourite was Park Square, one of the largest of London's private squares:
One unusual feature of the garden is the nursemaid's tunnel which takes you under the Euston Road to a smaller private garden at the other side.
I wonder how much it costs to be a key holder and be able to enjoy this delightful garden any time you want, but at least I could enjoy it for a short time today. In case you are wondering who might be key holders, this garden is on the edge of Regent's Park which is surrounded by the Nash Terraces, so draw your own conclusions
Tomorrow I will be pounding the streets again looking for more of these secret gardens.
