 approx 30 gardens opened Shere, near Guildford, Surrey
Sunday 25th June 2017

One of the most picturesque villages in Surrey, nestling at the foot of the North Down between Guildford and Dorking will be opening its garden gates and inviting the public to view 26 gardens - the biggest selection of beautiful private gardens that the event has ever offered - to help raise funds for village causes.

Whether you are a keen gardener or simply curious to see behind the lichen covered walls and manicured hedges, Shere Open Gardens gives a glimpse into quintessential England. Enjoy an afternoon strolling around the gardens, from sheltered courtyards full of spectacular flowering pots and containers or classic colourful cottage gardens festooned with roses, poppies and lupins in the heart of the village, to a great selection of larger elegantly landscaped gardens with sculptured planting, verdant lawns, tranquil lakes and gurgling streams, just beyond.

Homemade teas in the Village Hall.
