Open Garden Squares Weekend

Ever walked passed these lovely, but very private Garden Squares in London and felt a bout of "this is so unfair" setting in? Some are like a secret oasis, others look elegant or like fun and even have tennis courts and swings. All that is missing is a key!

This coming weekend, some of these gardens will open to the public all over London and here are some examples:

Hammersmith Sunken Garden

All the information you need for a wander you will find on the Open Garden Squares Website. Go and discover.

But if you need a bit more exercise and excitement, the World Naked Bike Ride, a peaceful demonstration against oil dependency and car culture, and a symbol of the vulnerability of the cyclist in traffic is coming to London this Saturday!

And if this sounds like an odd combination for a weekend just remember, it's London after all.

Happy Weekend!
