A Hither Green Festival Favourite - spend a relaxing afternoon visiting some wonderful gardens hidden behind Hither Green's mostly Victorian and Edwardian properties. Some of the gardens are manicured and clipped, others are more wildlife-friendly, some are large by London standards. Discover how the various owners deal with the heavy London clay.

Be inspired by amazing sheds, ponds, fruit trees and wildlife-rich private gardens. Enjoy child-friendly family gardens and sophisticated eating areas and gardens with river views.
