LondonLife – A glimpse into some of London’s hidden gardens…

June 18, 2013

Eccleston-Square

Thousands turned out for the Open Garden Squares Weekend in London earlier this month when more than 200 of London’s private, hidden, unusual or little known gardens – including those at Eccleston Square in Pimlico, pictured above – threw open their gates to the curious public. Among the highlights of this year’s weekend was the chance to see the gardens at 10 Downing Street (more than 40,000 people applied for the 40 places) which also included a tour of the house. Next year’s event will be held on 14th and 15th June. For more, see www.opensquares.org.

  1. That’s interesting! Normally you would expect that even if people have not been into privately owned gardens, they know the gardens are there. But private, hidden or little known gardens might mean exactly that.

    I don’t think I have even heard of Eccleston Square in Pimlico – yet your photo looks gorgeous.
