Bisham, near Marlow, Berkshire
Sunday 23rd June 2019
12.30pm to 5.30pm
Tree-lined Winter Hill is the perfect backdrop to this ancient village by the River Thames where delightful gardens will be open at this event now in its 28th year. All are interesting and very different. Two are riverside, some are cottage gardens with chickens and bees, others with an array of flowers and wide assortment of vegetables.
Start your afternoon with Ploughman's and Pimm's in a garden marquee (gluten free/vegan options) before a short stroll through more beautiful gardens in the heart of the village. Further gardens are near Marlow Bridge, including White Walls in Quarry Wood Road - opening for a final time - with wonderful views to the spectacular Marlow Weir.
Walk back across Town Farm track for stunning views of Winter Hill and then relax with homemade cake and teas on the riverside lawns of the Grade 1 listed Bisham Abbey.
There will be plenty of activities: 'Five to Find' in each garden, an exhibition on historic Bisham Village and the Vansittart family -founders of the Abbey.
