Please note
This event rested in 2020 and we don't have any up to date event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 16 gardens opened Benson, near Wallingford, Oxfordshire
Sunday 9th June 2019
2.00pm to 5.00pm

Come, view and enjoy a selection of our gardens, some favourites and some new, around the heart of the village ranging from a delightful courtyard, to traditional cottage gardens, and those with surprising beauty and content. For the first time we also have several allotments available to view to tempt vegetable gardeners to come along.

For the children this year we are holding a painted rock hunting competition - Benson Rocks have hidden a special garden-related rock in many of our Open Gardens. The challenge is on for the children to find a rock in each of our gardens to enter a draw to win a prize.

Delicious tea with cream scones and cakes will be available at the Millstream Centre until 6.00pm.

All proceeds will go to the Benson Millstream Centre.

Cost:  5.00 adults, accompanied under 16s free.

How to get event passports:  Tickets available in advance from Derry's Den, Benson High Street, and from the Millstream Centre or participating gardens on the day.
