Swanmore Open Gardens

 approx 10 gardens open Swanmore, north of Fareham, Hampshire
Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July 2024
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. About half of them are within easy walking distance of our start/finish point outside the Paterson Centre in Swanmore. This year we have a number of gardens that are new openers, or that have not been opened recently, and of course our old favourites change from year to year.

Teas, coffees and homemade cakes will be available in the Paterson Centre. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

Proceeds will be shared between St. Barnabas and Rowans Hospice.

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.

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 tickets / programmes
Tickets are available from 12.30pm at The Paterson Centre.

Number of gardens
Approximately 10 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.

Directions / Parking
Follow Open Gardens arrows from A32, or from B2177 at Bishops Waltham or Waltham Chase. Parking at the gardens is extremely limited and some of our lanes are very narrow. There is plenty of parking at The Paterson Centre, so please use the free shuttle bus provided by the Meon Valley Lions as a service to the community and the charities concerned.

Toilet Facilities
Toilets are available - locations will be advised on the day.
