The Hidden Gardens of Wedmore will be open on 24th and 25th June from 10.30 – 5 pm and tickets are £10, children are free. The gardens can be visited in any order and tickets, including a map, are available at St Mary’s church in the centre of the village and at each garden. Coffees, lunches and cream teas are available at the church and in two gardens. Two village car parks, one at each end of the village are free as are toilets in The Borough.
About a dozen gardens in Wedmore will be opening their gardens for all to see and admire. They are normally hidden from view so please take this wonderful opportunity to visit and admire them. They vary in size and delight. Some have been landscaped on the new developments and some are older and well established.
There will also be coffees, lunches and cream teas available in some of the gardens and at the church, which will benefit from the money raised. The gardeners are working hard to welcome their visitors so put the date in your diary and be sure not to miss this special weekend.
