Eckington Open Gardens and Flower Festival

 approx 33 gardens open Eckington, Worcestershire
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June 2018
10.00am to 6.00pm

For all those who love beautiful gardens, a visit to Eckington should not be missed. Eckington boasts around five gardens in the NGS scheme which are outstanding in their design and location. There are other gardens open of varying size and designs so there's plenty to see.

Each year, our Holy Trinity church displays a beautiful flower festival reflecting a chosen theme where villagers compete to produce outstanding floral displays. To refresh you on your tour there are plenty of refreshment stops, including home-made cakes and light meals. There is also a complimentary free circular mini-bus. For those with difficulty walking, gardens are marked if they are wheelchair-friendly.

We welcome coaches (please arrange beforehand for parking), gardening clubs, local groups, the elderly and anyone with an interest in gardens for a leisurely and tranquil day out.

Eckington is a lively, friendly village which lies near the river Avon, nestling beneath Bredon Hill between Tewkesbury and Pershore. We have two pubs. both offering accommodation and quality food, and a shop. There are also walks down to the river where there's a wharf and picnic area overlooking our famous medieval bridge.

All proceeds go to the general upkeep of Eckington Holy Trinity Church.
