Wells Open Gardens
This event is resting for 2017
Sorry, but Wells Open Gardens isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event
Sunday 12th June 2016
2.00pm to 6.00pm
St. Thomas Street and Tor Street are opening their gardens. Both are situated at the east end of Wells, behind the Cathedral, in what used to be a neighbourhood inhabited by artisans, washer-women and ladies of ill-repute. It is an area with great charm and lots of delightful gardens of all shapes and sizes. Included in the gardens will be one belonging to Wells Cathedral School.
This year we are celebrating the 90th birthday of our Queen. Enjoy our gardens and make time for tea and delicious home-made cakes in the beautiful Community Garden in Tor Street.
