Virtual Open Gardens
We are running a virtual Shere Open Gardens (see weblink below) where visitors can see a gallery of photographs from gardens that would have opened in normal circumstances. We also have a JustGiving link for visitors to make donations that will go to the local causes that rely so heavily on the funds raised by our annual event.
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 its 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.

Organised to raise money for a variety of village charities.

8.00 adults, 7.00 over 65s (and 1 off for advanced purchases from Shere Delights), accompanied under 16s free.
