Wells Open Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2017 so we don't have any recent 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 15 gardens opened Wells, Somerset
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.
