Swanmore Open Gardens

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 10 gardens opened Swanmore, north of Fareham, Hampshire
Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2019
1.00pm to 6.00pm

On the edge of the Meon Valley, in the heart of the Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton triangle, our delightful village will open a number of its gardens to visitors.

The gardens vary from small intimate village gardens, to large country house gardens. In addition to our old favourites, there are one or two that have not opened recently and all have, of course, changed as the years have passed.

Most of our gardens are within easy walking distance of our start/finish point outside the Paterson Centre in Swanmore. A free shuttle bus service will be provided courtesy of Meon Valley Lions Club. Teas, coffees and homemade cakes will be available from the Paterson Centre. Why not book a table at the dog-friendly Brickmakers (150yds 01489 890 954) for lunch - mention Open Gardens to ensure quick service.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

Proceeds will be shared between St. Barnabas, Rowans and Bishops Waltham Food Bank.

Plant sales:  There will be plants for sale and a plant creche will avoid the need to carry them around - just give them to the minibus driver and collect them from The Paterson Centre.

Cost:  6.00 adults per day, with free entry for one or two accompanied under 15s per adult. Entry includes use of the hop-on-hop-off minibus.

How to get event passports:  Tickets are available from 12.30pm at The Paterson Centre, SO32 2PA.
