Usk is known as the Town Of Flowers and has a reputation for winning Wales in Bloom for over 30 years. On our Open Gardens Weekend the atmosphere is akin to the flower festivals one encounters in some continental towns.
In 2014 Usk was chosen for the event celebrating 50 years of the RHS. The Duchess of Cornwall visited 3 of the Open Gardens, one of which was awarded RHS Best Front Garden in Wales 2014.
One of the most beautiful gardens is that which surrounds the medieval castle ruins.
Proceeds donated to charities and good causes locally including St Davids Hospice, Ty Hafan Childrens Hospice, Diabetes Wales, and NGS.
Cost: £7.50 adults, children 14 and under free.
How to get event passports: From the stalls in the car park, or in Twyn Square.
