Bisham Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2016 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

 approx 11 gardens opened Bisham, near Marlow, Berkshire
Sunday 19th June 2016
12.00noon to 5.30pm

Come and enjoy a lovely day out in the picturesque village and parish of Bisham. A number of gardens will be open, including two new gardens, plus the historic riverside 12th century All Saints Church, and Bisham Abbey. At least three of the gardens are riverside and one can only be visited by boat from White Walls, some have chickens and one invites you to dip your hand into the honey.

We have a beautiful Yellow Book garden with wonderful views up to the spectacular Marlow weir. Ploughman's lunches will be served here. Boat trips and ferry give access to one other garden.

Ploughman's lunches, teas, homemade cakes, hot dogs, hamburgers at various garden locations.

This year is the 25th anniversary of Bisham Open Garden Day and is in memory of Patricia Burstall BEM, who founded and ran the event for 24 years. Sadly Patricia died following an accident at her home, Little Croft, in March.

All proceeds go to All Saints Church, Bisham.
